One of the best projects any knitter can make in the fall – is to make a scarf with one of these scarf knitting patterns.

I have been feeling the change in the weather over the last few days and now that fall is here I am looking forward to spending more time knitting.

While searching for new series to watch on Netflix, as many have been starting recently, I have also been searching for new patterns to share with you.

Recently I have been buying new yarns in gorgeous colours, like greys, navy, red and various shades of brown.

This yarn is made from 60% alpaca and 40% wool for a really soft blend.

It’s really bulky and is perfect for fall knitting projects like hats and scarves.

There are so many easy scarf knitting patterns out there, that you are really spoilt for choice.

From fine intricate knitted scarves to super chunky knitted cowls, you can make one to match every outfit.

When you look in the stores and see scarves for sale, they are often poor quality and made with acrylic yarns….so making your own is a much better idea!

Choosing your own yummy yarns and making a long scarf or cowl for yourself is really satisfying and sure to bring compliments from friends and family.
