We’re smitten with Two of Wands new Cityscape collection, so we just had to share it with you. These 6 new kits are knit & crochet, and feature some of the hottest trends for Fall. While they’re available to be purchased as a kit (which make a great gift) you can also purchase just the pattern as a PDF download, for $4.50 each. Whether you’d like to craft it yourself or give it as a gift, these kits are a perfect purchase for whatever holiday gifting you have in mind. And with the option to buy the pattern alone, you could always use that special yarn you’ve been saving and downsize your stash.

Changing seasons means transitioning our wardrobe, including accessories. But while we might have a particular purse for each outerwear option, our totes often get left behind. When you’re spending the day on the go, or need something roomier for travel, having the perfect Fall bag can really complete your look. The Red Hook Afternoon Shoulder Bag (Crochet) hits all these marks. Its neutral tone is a bit cooler, meaning it’ll leave room in your look for other statement accessories (like a bright scarf or hat). And in terms of the lines, the shape and especially the arm-hole are simple, yet striking, offering notes of sophisticated detail.
A new accessory can be the perfect way to change up last year’s go-to style. Plus, you’ll have a fun, just-for-you project to whip up before the holiday crafting mania begins! The Snowfall on the Bowery Wrap (Crochet) is a gorgeous project, with surprisingly simple eyelets giving this piece a delicate texture. While the super scarf is a classic statement accessory, its purpose is definitely to overwhelm your look. So with this wrap, you get the same over-sized and cozy feel, without over-powering your outfit.
When it comes to outerwear for cooler weather, the options are pretty standard. But this year, we’re seeing a new trend – the sweater trench. This cute coat tends to take the form of an over-sized blazer, or more streamlined trench coat, but one aspect is always the same: it’s unmistakably knit. Capitalizing on this fresh silhouette, Two of Wands designed this adorable Tribeca Trench Coat (Crochet). With all the trappings of a classic trench, including the belted waistline and notched collar, it’s cozy & chic at the same time. Plus this gorgeous neutral taupe is a go-with-everything color.
There’s nothing sweeter than a sweater coat with a hint of whimsy to it. That’s what makes the Cobble Hill Morning Cape (Knit) so delightful. From the over-sized boxy silhouette, to the color blocking of the trim, to the incidental tasseled scarf, this cape is a dream. In addition to the cozy shape, you’ll also be crafting with Wool-Ease Thick & Quick, so this will be a warm outer-layer. Depending on what’s in your stash, you could opt to simply buy the pattern, and then stitch it up in any neutral hue. You could even spice up the look with a pop of color for the trim!
If you’re noticing a trend thus far, it’s that creamy neutrals are still in vogue. Perhaps it’s the lingering effect of the Hygge boom, the imported Danish frenzy for all things minimal & cozy. So when it comes to minimal neutrals, the Evening in the Village Turtleneck (Knit) is just such a one. This piece is an effortlessly chic addition to your winter wardrobe. The pattern features the height of casual coziness, the waffle knit. Pair with skinny jeans, a mini skirt with another texture (maybe tweed or leather), or even a maxi skirt or dress for a look with long lines.
The last of these 6 new kits in the CityScape Collection is the Alphabet City Cape Scarf (Knit). This heavy cape scarf could certainly replace a jacket on a cool day, and the color palette of bluish grey neutrals will go with everything. This palette of industrial neutrals has also been trending for a season or two, so it’s not going to go out of style anytime soon. Grab this scarf for a day you plan to spend outdoors, or as your travel staple.
This chic & cozy new Cityscape Collection has everything we’re looking for to freshen up our Fall style. Which of these 6 new kits is your favorite?
