What better way to start knitting for fall than to look at free autumn knitting patterns to inspire you!
As the days get colder and you spend more time inside (staying cozy!) this is the perfect time to find new knitting projects.
Whether you are a beginner knitter or a seasoned expert, there is always time to get the needles out and make something new for Autumn.
If you want something more unique, than say a store-bought sweater or pair of socks, then there is only one answer – you should make it yourself!
Starting a new knitting project is a great way to pass some time in fall and create something warm that you will cherish.
Not really cheaper than buying a sweater or pair of chunky knit socks from the store, but you do have the benefits of choosing your yarns and pattern style.

Easy Knitting Patterns
I really want to make an oversized chunky knit sweater this fall, possibly in a garter stitch, so it’s quick to knit up, I’m not a huge fan of overly intricate projects, as I like to move on and see the finished product.
Making hats is what I like to do in the fall, from chunky yarns that are super soft, in a variety of colours and patterns.
