As the August heat begins to die down and September approaches, we can start knitting for autumn.
We can stroll along on cool fall evenings, smelling the freshly fallen leaves and the year’s last few cuts of grass. Our hillsides glow like sunsets from trees filled with rich fall colors. Crunchy leaves blow around and make that delightful scratchy sound on the pavement while the air becomes crisp and refreshing. Brisk fall evenings are perfect for twilight strolls and romantic walks through the park.
However, that brisk and invigorating air doesn’t come without a chill. How often have we cut our leisurely strolls short because we felt a little too cold? While we are still shrugging off the heat of the summer, we forget to start layering. With this list of autumn knitting patterns, you’ll never forget to leave the house without a trusty hat, scarf, or cowl. You’ll always remember to keep the chill at bay and cover your shoulders with these lovely shawls and ponchos. Filled with deep fall colors, these knits will keep you warm without the heaviness of your winter wear. Start knitting for your evening walks and fall in love with these 30 autumn knitting patterns.

Gifted by: Unicorn Fibre
We are giving away one set of Unicorn Fibre Cleansers. The set contains 3 individual bottles of Unicorn Fibre Wash, Rinse, and Power Scour (16 oz. per bottle). The deadline to enter is August 27, 2014 at 11:59:59 PM Eastern Time.
While these washes are designed for manufacturers that mass produce yarns, there are condensed forms especially for knitters! These fiber cleansers are the perfect way to care for your handmade knits. When you spend money on specialty skeins, be it alpaca, mohair, or cashmere, you want a wash that will clean your linens gently and thoroughly. After you wear your knits, and even after you wash them with other products, you tend to become blind to the dirt and residue that collect in your yarn. You forget how plush and soft your yarn was after you bound off the last stitch. Unicorn washes restore the natural luster and vibrant colors of your yarns with gentle, environmentally friendly ingredients.
