9 Easy Knits To Make In A Weekend


In this post, you will see 9 easy knits to make in a weekend.

My favourite season is autumn, I love enjoying it from the comforts of my home with my dog by my side and my knitting.

With the cold crisp and sometimes sunny weather, I have become more than enthusiastic about starting new knitting projects and finishing old ones.

So many colours and yarns are to be found this season, so I have treated myself to new yarns from Wool and the gang, Cascade and We are knitters.

Use Fall Colours As Inspiration

I just love the creative vibes I get from this season, the colours of the changing leaves, the countryside walks, snuggling in a blanket to knit and of course reading design magazines.

The fall colours I am in love with right now, ranging from greens, blues and teal to browns, creams and burnt orange.

The autumnal colour palettes are best found from nature, with thick chunky yarns used to make hats and scarves for the colder months.

You can also put those super bulky yarns together to knit cosy blankets.

Knitted on huge circular needles, blankets using two strands of super bulky yarn or jumbo yarn together will be comfortable and warm.

Get inspiration from fall when creating your next colour palette and plan your October/November knitting projects.

With greens, orange, browns and blues there are yarns in yummy fall colours just waiting to be made into sweaters, scarves, hats and socks.

Inspirational colours this season include; greens and burnt orange.

Go for textured yarns in stunning colours, like neutral colours mixed with a bright green.

Greens are mixing well with dark greys and teal blues.

Chunkier yarns are also a firm favourite with knitters as large chunky knits are still really popular.

Yarns like Rowan big wool is one of my go-to yarns for the autumn/winter.
