2. Grace Street Hat
Big texture and a pompom on top make this hat an autumn classic, and it’s a great way to learn cables. Bonus: Our our has super-smart tips for reading cable charts.
3. Embroidered Mitts
Mitts are perfect for chilly fall days. They keep your hands warm, while leaving your fingers free to send a text or juggle your coffee and keys. (Prediction: you’re going to want more than one pair.)
4. Warm Fuzzy Hat

5. Waffle Stitch Cowl
Autumn’s chill is no match for this neckwarmer — plus it looks super chic with tights and boots. Think of it as an instant style upgrade for last year’s sweaters.
