Autumn in North America starts in a few weeks, but you don’t have to wait for a calendar date to decide on a fall knitting project! Manos del Uruguay yarns will keep you warm and cozy no matter what you knit. Here are our newest knitting patterns to keep you covered as the temperatures cool.
The Fairmount Fibers team brings a beautiful pattern collection for the 2017 fall season. Mari Chiba is the featured designer of 6 pieces. Mari’s aim, inspired by Japanese fashion, was to create fun knits and indulge her cable obsession. Shown above, clockwise from the top left: Bonsall in Maxima, Dorrance in Franca, Jessup in Silk Blend, Ritner in Gloria, and Norwood cowl and hat in Franca.
Accessories make great gifts, too – couldn’t everyone use a new hat, scarf, or mitts this year? The collection includes an assortment of unisex patterns including Ellet by Barbara Benson in Gloria (left), Cantrell Hat and Cowl by Sarah Solomon in Maxima (center top), Tasker by Christine Marie Chen in Maxima (right), and Gerritt, also by Christine in Gloria (center, bottom).
Scarves, wraps, and a capelet round out the accessories. Shown above, from left to right: Mifflin by Emma Welford in Maxima, McKean by Sara Solomon in Silk Blend, Ringgold (center top), Fitzwater (center bottom) and Sedgwick (Wrap, Cowl, and Scarf) all designs by Lisa R. Myers in Clara.
Finer-gauge sweaters include two designs by Melissa Leapman: Annin in Gloria and Latona in Silk Blend. In addition, Warnock by Sarah Solomon in Silk Blend and Winton by Ash Alberg in Milo all offer cozy and comfortable styles that are equally fun to knit and wear.
With cooler temperatures on the horizon for much of the United States, will you start a sweater or layer on the accessories? Do you use Pinterest for planning? We have a dedicated pattern board for this collection on Pinterest from which you can pin!
