4 Fun Patterns for Fall

With fall just around the corner, it’s fun to start thinking about all the warm and cozy knits to make and wear this season. These wonderful free patterns are a great place to find inspiration for your cool-weather knitting projects.


The Chunky Eyelet Cowlette by Corrina Ferguson combines a cowl and a shawlette to turn it into one great accessory. The pattern begins by working a top-down triangle shawl in rows. Once the piece is wide enough to fit over the head, it’s joined in the round and the rest of the piece is worked as a cowl. With this pattern worked in a bulky weight yarn, it’s easy to whip out a cowlette or two over the weekend!

Want a simple project for knitting on the go? Check out the Twisted Stockinette Stitch Headband, also by Corrina Ferguson. Once the pattern is established, it’s just one row repeating until the headband is complete. Corrina has provided step-by-step photos on how to create the twist at the end.

Here’s another great pattern from Corrina. She designed the Cozy Cowl for that special skein of bulky-weight yarn you have in the stash. The stitch pattern is eyelets paired with Stockinette stitch. The simple stitches really make that beautiful yarn shine.

If you’re looking for a simple cowl with a twist, check out the Simple Textured Cowl by Mary Beth Temple. It’s a textured cowl with an actual twist added to the piece when finishing. Knit stitches and purl stitches are all you need to know to make this accessory. It’s a great beginner project!
