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.

CHUNKY EYELET COWLETTE

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!

TWISTED STOCKINETTE STITCH HEADBAND

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.

COZY COWL

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.

Download the Cozy Cowl here. If you’d like to see more from Corrina, check her out on Instagram.

SIMPLE TEXTURED COWL

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!

    My favorite thing to knit in the fall are slippers. It is the same pattern my mother used to make for her children & grandchildren.

    The more cowl patterns I can find, the happier I will be. I knit, however, cowls do not seem to take nearly as long as some sweater patterns. I’d prefer to knit something that does not take nearly as long as a shawl, neck scarf or a blanket! I will try to knit the first of the four patterns available. I have the premium membership of the Knitting Circle. This will be the first I have attempted to tackle. I am truly a new knitter. I’ve only knitted two half pattern sweaters, a shawl and one LONG sock!!! So I say, let the fun begin! I am 80 and the fingers are getting a bit old too. I am however. up for fairly simple challenges!! Wish me luck on finding a few more cowl patterns, They will be good for Christmas gifts.

      Good for you! I have been knitting for 50 years, and still plan on using up all my yarn before I die (not even remotely likely). Try 60 Quick Cowls (in paperback on Amazon). At one point I was planning to knit every cowl in that book, but my attention span is not that long.

    This time of year, I’m making hats and scarves for a local “clothes closet” that supports homeless and financially stressed individuals.

    I think you should also specify the size of yarn as 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. “Chunky” might mean 5 or 6. I re-title my instructions on my computer so I know whether they’re knit or crochet and the size of the yarn. E.g., Chunky Cowlette K5. It helps me find patterns I’m interested in.
