3. Autumn Paradox Crochet Scarf
In the beginning of fall, the colors are bright and vibrant. As we head into winter, they darken and get subtler. These understated hues are often the perfect choice for sophisticated fall accessories, such as this crochet handkerchief scarf that doubles as a narrow shoulder wrap.

4. Autumn Leaves Shawlette
Crochet shawls vary from lightweight to extra bulky, any of which can be right for the fall season. When you need an extra layer but it isn’t too cold, go for this lacy, golden design. It’s made with only basic crochet stitches that are placed to create an effect of falling autumn leaves. You can wear it on colder days by wrapping it as a scarf and combining it with a jacket.

5. Tweed Stripes Wrap
This great crochet pattern is designed as a ruana that can double as a lap blanket. A combination of yarns offer terrific texture — just looking at it gives you that fun feeling of stomping on crunchy fallen leaves. The bulky yarn means that this is a very warm wrap, perfect for sitting outside during football games or watching the moon start coming up earlier and earlier.

6. Autumn Breeze Cabled Poncho
There’s so much to love about this crochet poncho. Its sophisticated, elegant design comes from the cables, which are always fun to practice. With a cowl neck and thick yarn, this is a very cozy autumn wrap. However, it has short sleeves and a mostly open front, making it perfect for layering. The rich red color is reminiscent of candy apples.

Boots are definitely the perfect fall shoe, and you can make them cuter and cozier by adding boot cuffs. These easy scalloped boot cuffs bring in the golden color of autumn light and put a smile on your face when you wear them.

8. Lacy Leg Warmers
Boot cuffs are great when it is chilly but not cold; as it gets colder, you might want full leg warmers. You still get the same pop of color out of the top of your boots but you also get more coverage on your legs to keep you warm. These leg warmers have a fun stitch on the body and a ribbed stitch at the top that helps keep them in place.

Orange is fall’s favorite color, and a favorite for socks, too! You can go bold with socks because people will only see a little bit of it. These crochet socks are made with post stitches and clusters, offering great texture, but they have an open design so they aren’t too hot — just warm enough.
