The leaves on the tree outside my office window are starting to turn and its definitely cooler in the evenings. Although I knit all year round, autumn is the time of year that I get even more excited about it than usual! There is so much to inspire knitters in this season, but here’s some beautiful projects in stunning autumn colours to make you feel cosy as the temperature starts to drop.
This picture couldn’t possibly be more autumnal…here is Selkie’s ridiculously cute Elijah. Her project notes have tips on the sweater illusion and adding a tail.
This is Ginny Sheller’s beautiful Scroll Lace Scarf. She’s written about it on her blog here and you can read more about the yarn on her project page.
Mslindz’s Snapdragons….from Ysolda’s Snapdragon Flip-top mittens pattern, without the flip-tops! This is such a simple but effective modifcation, and a good one to go for if you’re a little short on yarn.
Amazing Strokkur colour combinations just keep cropping up! This is nenakokopelli’s Strokkur. I just love that pop of blue, as also seen in…
NikkiFB’s Pyukkleen from last year’s Knitworthy gift-a-long. I’m positive this will be inspiring some colourwork projects of my own soon.
And finally, agnessenciel’s stunning Skelf, from Little Red in the City. Such a beautiful colour!
