where can i go after making a scarf?

You COULD theoretically knit the pieces of a sweater and then sew them together, but I and most knitters I know find it easier to just knit it in the round, which would use a circular needle and doesn’t require any seaming. It’s still two needle points, they’re just connected by a cable. To be honest I use circular needles exclusively, especially for big projects, since they’re much gentler on the wrists and hands since you’re only holding up the weight of one section of fabric at a time.
Tin Can Knits is a very popular knitting brand, and their Simple Collection is a whole suite of patterns intended for beginners to learn the techniques. Many a knitter has “Flax” as their first pullover sweater, or Rye as their first socks, Grain as their first shawl.
[A hat](https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/karina-turban-hat) knit flat. Has knits, purls, and decreases. Fairly quick and simple, and pretty cute!
Really whatever you want is going to be the logical next step. There's so much good info online and there's no question too "newbie" sounding for people on this sub. And slogging through a series such as, "dishcloth, scarf, hat in the round, cowl, mittens, colorwork hat, flat sweater, seamless sweater" is pointless if you're not into making half of those things. Just try it, and DON'T BE AFRAID TO FROG YOUR WORK lol things happen 😊

If you enjoy the hat, the Shakerag tshirt by Amy Christoffers is a nice easy wearable piece [https://www.reddit.com/r/knitting/wiki/index](https://www.reddit.com/r/knitting/wiki/index) u/RavBot
To the store to buy more supplies! 😂
If your ultimate goal is to knit a shirt, I would learn to knit in the round. A hat would be a good middle ground, and you would also learn decreases. [This guide](https://www.earthguild.com/products/knitcroc/marypat/hatcalc.htm) tells you how to knit a hat at any gauge. YouTube is also your friend for learning new techniques.
you can go anywhere :)
try Grandma's dishcloth to learn increasing and decreasing. this will help when you need to do any shaping on sweaters or tops.
try a hat or cowl to learn to knit in the round.
with these in your toolbox, a top down raglan is totally do-able.
you will probable want to pick up some circular needles at some point, 16 inch for a hat. longer circulars for a sweater or a top.
I say just find something you want to try and jump in. As long as you can do knits and purls you can do pretty much anything; all stitches are just different manipulations of those two basic stitches.
I wouldn't worry too much about what is the "proper" thing to knit next. Unlike sewing, if you find out that your project isn't working you can always frog and try something new. You can absolutely knit a top in pieces on two needles. Check out Ravelry...you can narrow your search by type of project, yarn weight, etc. Find something that speaks to you.
i knit some arm/hand warmers after i did scarves! they’re quite easy as you can knit them flat and then sew them together!
you can find some nice easy patterns that also teach you how to do some nice new stitch patterns too!
[this tank top](https://www.twoofwands.com/blog/streamline-tank) is seamed together if you’re looking for something to try without buying circulars
