Apparently, it’s time for some Autumn Knitting.
I know it’s only September, but yesterday I went into town, and do you know what I saw? Leaves. Brown, crunchy leaves, littering the pavement.
Seemingly, it became Autumn overnight, even though I could have sworn that technically it’s still Summer.
I’m not complaining, though, I am apparently a rare breed who loves the turning of the seasons, whether it’s Spring or Winter! I always find the start of a new season makes me feel invigorated and excited for what’s to come!
So, seeing as we will shortly be hit by the cool crisp weather (in the UK at least), and an onslaught of pumpkin spiced stuff, I thought I would do a round-up of my 6 top knitting projects for Autumn (or Fall, depending on where you are!)
1. Mug cosies
Well, you need to keep your pumpkin spiced, extra hot, extra whip, skinny triple venti grande Americano chai caramel macchiato warm, don’t you?!
2. Fingerless mitts
It’s not quite cold enough for full gloves yet, but there is a nip in the air.
Obviously, you still need to be able to knit (or use your smartphone), so being able to use your fingers is essential.
Fingerless mitts are clearly the answer! They’re quick and easy to knit, they look stylish, and they’re practical! What more do you want?
3. Chunky cardigans
Everyone loves a chunky, oversized cardigan. They’re cosy, they’re comfy, they’re practical, plus, they look stylish no matter how you wear them!
4. Cosy blankets
The nights are getting longer, so the evenings are getting colder and darker. Snuggling up under a big knitted blanket, with a hot chocolate, Netflix and some knitting is really the only way to spend those autumnal evenings!
Plus, when you’re knitting the blanket, you can snuggle under it for extra warmth! It’s really a win-win situation.
5. Knitted pumpkins
If you’re like me, you like to switch up the decor in your house regularly. I usually do it by season, warm coloured cushions and blankets in Winter, brightly coloured flowers in Spring… you get the idea.
Seeing as everything in Autumn tends to be pumpkin-oriented, you could try these cute pumpkin decorations. They’d look pretty adorable as a centrepiece I think!
6. Knitted skirts
They’ll probably keep your bum warm too. Just sayin’…
So, that’s my top 6 Autumn knits… What do you plan on knitting over the coming months?
