Early Fall Knitting: 6 Stylish Patterns

It doesn’t take much change in the weather for knitters to get that seasonal knitting itch. Fall knitting is something we plan for all year long!

We begin to think about which sweater we will wear on that first crisp morning and which scarf or shawl will keep us warm on a blustery evening.

Well knitters, get your yarn and needles ready and check out these projects perfect for your fall knitting.
