Category: Featured Projects

October is here! There is something for everyone this month. What is your favorite component? Today we’re indulging in the colors of the season!

Fall colors of Manos del Uruguay Alegria Manos del Uruguay Fino

Are you a leaf-peeper? Bringing your seasonally colored project might make the journey more enjoyable! Did you know that otono is Spanish for Autumn? Wind up a skein of Alegria in this colorway for socks or a hat, like RCPatten’s Stay Gold hat shown above. The mini-skein bundle, #5 Eleanor, in combination with Fino in Poison, pair perfectly in the Fino Shadow Shawl, a new free pattern from the Fairmount Fibers Design Team

Franca ideas

For lovers of heavier yarn looking to indulge in a fall palette, pick up Franca in Miel, Tormenta, or Fudge. The Cocktail Umbrella Cowl, another new free pattern, calls for only one skein! The Norwood hat & cowl patterns from the Fall collection are quick-to-knit accessories. They will keep you warm in those breezy fall mornings or evenings.

Camote Pocket Scarf free knitting pattern in Manos del Uruguay Maxima

What would October be without orange? Maxima in Sweet Potato, Tigerlily or Fire fit the bill! The Camote Pocket Scarf is a great way to showcase the amazing colors of this hand-dyed artisanal yarn. 

Let’s see what you are making in these fabulous fall hues! Share your projects with us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Ravelry

    Fun seeing my “Stay Gold” hat featured here- thanks! Alegria was beautiful to knit up and this simple hat by Laura Reinbach is just the right weight for a cool (or bad hair!) day.
