fall fashion

Fall is an exciting time for knitters and crocheters. As the Summer winds down we find ourselves eagerly looking forward to the cooling temperature. With it comes the possibility for wearing our favorite designs and getting set to curl up with new ones.

Like Spring, Fall is a season of layering. Pieces that can be thrown on over a simple shirt or dress make planning the day's wardrobe easier. Chunky sweaters, like the Alpine pullover (#2 below), can serve as outerwear instead of a bulky jacket. Yes, these types of days let your favorite knit and crochet pieces shine.

    A lot of crochet! Great designs, but there used to be a lot more fashionable projects for Knitters, too.

    I am an avid knitter and crocheter and source patterns widely, including Lion Brand. BUT I live in South Africa, and lately I have become very frustrated because so many of the patterns are only available as part of a kit, which is not viable for those of us who are far afield.
