Fall Favorites!!!

Fall? Yes, Fall will be here sooner than you think! Summer sure came before I was ready! So today's post is all about my Fall favorites from last Fall and some I think will be this Fall's favorite... Fall is my favorite season so it's no wonder that I design fall pieces year round!

Many of you know that I love designing beanies and occasionally, matching cowls. One of my favorite yarns to use for my designs are the Wool Ease, Thick and Quick by Lion Brand. I use this yarn in a lot in my chunky designs. It's a great yarn to use if you're just learning to knit or crochet! These saved me when I first learned how to knit!

I've used multiple colors to bring together some of my favorites pieces. This one uses Fig, Pumpkin & Fisherman. No pattern is available for this one.

Although I love to add color into my pieces, I'm really more of an earthy, natural (maybe even boring?) kind of gal. For example, the Alexis & Helix set is made using Barley and a different color on the pom for a bit of a pop (see? I still add color) :). Simple stitches are used for beautiful textures in these two sets. My goal is to write easy to understand patterns that work up quickly and wouldn't intimidate a beginner. If i feel something is a little difficult in a pattern, I add a video tutorial. I learned visually and I know a lot of people who appreciate that.

These patterns are available in my shops.

Let's talk about another fall favorite, the Mustard. This Delaney Slouch looks great in Mustard. Some colors may make it hard to see the designs in a piece but the mustard color was perfect for this cabled front beanie on a garter stitch background. Pattern also available in shops.

When Graphite came out, I was in love! The best part was this color was also available in worsted weight yarn (Vanna's Choice). I used it in the Honeycomb Slouch Beanie & Grapevine Slouch Beanie (both patterns available).

If you're feeling like adding some non traditional "Fall" colors, the Peacock & Hudson Bay colors are a great combination. I received such wonderful feedback on my Instagram when I posted this photo. Teal is one of my favorite colors and who doesn't love Hudson Bay? The Knit Chunky pattern is a basic beanie (one of my first designs) which doesn't include color change instructions however you can just switch colors after knitting the brim as I did below.

There are 2 newer colors, Coney Island (left) & Astroland (right) that I can't wait to get my hands on for this Fall's designs.

I can't wait to design more Fall (& winter) pieces this year. I love it so much that I'm always thinking about new designs year round. There's too much to do and never enough time. I know you will all agree on that! I only wished I started doing all this earlier in life! Better late than never, I suppose!

For more patterns, visit my shops from the menu bar, I offer free patterns as well!

Which ones are your favorite? I'd love to hear from you!
