I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. Fall is, without a doubt, my favorite season. Like most people, whenever the temperature shifts, my wardrobe and knitting habits shift with it. Now that we’re smack dab in the middle of October, I can officially pack away all of my shorts and tank tops from the summer and break out the hoodies and cardigans. As a knitter, I’m definitely searching for the heavier knit cowls and knit hat patterns as opposed to the breezy shawls and lightweight beanies of the spring and summer months. Somehow, though, I manage to forget that the knitting possibilities are simply endless. There’s no reason to limit myself to just the basic knits I’m used to. Knit cardigans and sweaters are within my reach!
Now that we’re finally away from the sweltering heat of summer, it’s time to get out your bulky weight yarn and larger needles and get settled in with some cozy quick knits. Sure, there are the usual cowls and scarves and hats (oh my!) to knit up in preparation for the sudden decline in the temperature. However, while you work on all of those quick and easy fall favorites, you can’t forget to cast on a cardigan or two this knitting season. They may take quite a bit of time (and definitely a lot of patience), but the end result is a new cardigan you can add to your closet. Honestly, who doesn’t love any opportunity to increase the size of their wardrobe for half the cost? One thing’s for certain, you’re sure to beam with pride whenever someone asks where you got your awesome new cardigan from. They won’t believe you made it yourself!
So, go ahead. Show off your amazing knitting skills this fall. Who knows? You may even find your new favorite fall accessory.
