5 Patterns to Usher in the Fall

I can’t believe we are almost finished with our 9th knit along, the Hudson Valley Cardi KAL! I am floored that over 540 knitters have participated. It thrills me to see all of your amazing projects! I hope you’ve enjoyed yourselves and picked up some new skills along the way. Prizes will be awarded any day, so make sure those project pages are set up!

Though the KAL is almost over, the fun doesn’t have to end. I have plenty of patterns to keep you knitting all the way into fall. Some of these patterns also come with full video instructions, making the process even more informative and engaging for you. I should also remind you that you might want to start thinking about knitting for the holiday season, but there are plenty of smaller items to think about for that!

Here are 5 patterns to usher in the fall.

Houndstooth Cardigan

Houndstooth CardiganThe Houndstooth Cardigan is a mock houndstooth fabric, created with a simple slip-stitch pattern. The menswear styling is tweaked with gentle waist shaping. With a stylish v-neck cut, wear this piece with comfort and style, AND it includes a video tutorial for my 3 row buttonhole!





Labadee Cowl Video Class

Labadee Cowl If you want to keep your neck warm and cozy, you will love the Labadee Cowl. This is a great piece for a brisk morning run or a chilly evening enjoying smores by the campfire. The pattern includes 8 video links, packed with a ton of information. It is even written to 3 different gauges.

If you order the kit you’ll save 35% on the pattern (psst, makes a great gift).






The Sachertorte has a gorgeous asymmetrical cable swing coat — perfect autumn wear. This will definitely become your go-to item on those cool nights. So detailed and trendy, the Sachertorte is guaranteed to quickly become one of your wardrobe favs. It also includes one of my favorite buttonhole tricks . . . a buttonhole hidden inside a mock cable!
