Embossed Leaves and fall knitting patterns
I love it when one of our fall knitting patterns take the knitting world by storm. Rebecca Blair’s Embossed Leaves pullover from Love of Knitting Fall 2015 is one of those. It’s just debuted and already it’s super popular on Ravelry. And for good reason; the leaf motif is beautiful, and it really highlights a classic pullover sweater.
This is that weird time of year when knitters are enjoying summer heat and activities while browsing wool sweaters and accessories to cast on come fall. But that’s the life we yarn hounds love, right?
Love of Knitting editor Deb Gerish is here today to talk about the new issue, which I know you’ll love. It’s so full of gorgeous designs, so might just have to plop yourself down in front of a fan and cast on!
Dreaming of Fall
Autumn has always been my favorite season of the year. In childhood, it meant going back to school (yes, I was that kid who liked school), visiting the local cider mill for freshly pressed cider and hot doughnuts, and eventually escaping the heat and humidity of Michigan summers. Those thrills have never gone away. In fact, during the eight years I lived in Southern California, the fall months always disappointed because the weather didn’t change! And by that point in my life, I had discovered knitting and handspinning, so the constant warmth didn’t provide many opportunities to cuddle up in a big wool sweater. That’s what fall means to me now: serious knitting time with my best-loved yarns and types of projects.
So join me on a fall knitting adventure filled with wonderful designs. Walk down a knitted Forest Path where leaves “grow” from cables and lace. Garments and accessories in Crisp Weather will fit in at the office or the playground with their casual sophistication—elegant lines, beautiful colors, and delightful details make these designs stand out.
The Great Outdoors story celebrates bright sunshine on a chilly day, when you’ll want extra layers for warmth. Then return to the place you love best with Hearth & Home, a collection of accessories and decorative items that say, “aaaah, I’m back.”
Get Love of Knitting fall today, grab your needles, and raise a mug of apple cider to celebrate fall with me! I’m happy to eat a doughnut on your behalf, too.
