Fall is here!! And what better to celebrate our favorite season than to knit a cardigan? Or a pullover? Or a cowl? Or…how about them all?! Plus now is a good time to start thinking about knitting for the holiday season. And the most wonderful thing is that while you are knitting a new project, there are tons of tutorials within these patterns that can teach you new and valuable skills.

Here are seven patterns with tons of useful skills that I recommend to get you into the fall spirit:
