Fall Patterns From Lion Brand Yarns


October sees fall patterns from Lion Brand Yarns and they introduce ‘chestnut’ as their color of the month as the weather starts to get much cooler (depending on where you live that is!) this month is the perfect time to make a cozy sweater, vest, poncho or shawl.

If you live in a hot climate, during the cooler months of fall anything made from bulky yarn might be the last thing you want to wear since the temperatures are still quite balmy, so instead, you could make something for your home, like a cozy knit blanket or afghan. – Everyone Loves Free Knitted Blanket Patterns

If you enjoy making your knit or crochet projects in shades that have the essence of autumn, those colors are usually always in style.

Whether you want something strong – in a coffee-rich hue or something softer, there are colors and textures that will appeal to everyone.

Often seen in the 1970s, this color was popular in fashion, in suede, leather, and of course crochet afghans!

1. Top-Down Raglan Cardigan (Knit)

This comfy-looking top-down raglan cardigan knitting pattern, designed by Irina Poludnenko is available on the Lion Brand website.

It has been made with Lion Brand wool ease thick and quick yarn.

This knit cardigan could be worn all through the fall, with jeans or trousers.

I want to make one and wear it as a substitute for a fall jacket.

Skill level – Level 2 – Easy (Beginner+).

2. Colourfully Modern Cardigan (Crochet)

If the stronger browns are not your colors, perhaps something with a bit of color thrown in will inspire you.

This gorgeous colorfully modern cardigan uses two different types of yarn, Lion Brand Heartland Yarn and Landscapes.

It will give you the opportunity to expand your crochet skills if you are a beginner.

Skill level – Level 3 – Intermediate.

3. Knit Pullover & Basic Hat (Knit)

Two patterns for you to try out here – including a knitted pullover and a hat.

The pullover with its square shape and the interesting stitch pattern is shown off with a light-colored yarn.

The pattern calls for Lion Brand Woolspun – which it seems is out of stock, but they have a substitute in Vanna’s Choice in honey or toffee.

The basic knitted hat pattern has been made with Lion Brand Landscapes yarn in the mountain range.

This is self-striping and looks so pretty, perfect for any beginner knitter.

Skill Level – Pullover – Level 2 – Easy (Beginner+) / Hat – Level 1 – Beginner.

4. Fisherman’s Rib Scarf Pattern (Knit)

If you want to make a scarf with a free scarf-knitting pattern, then this is for you!

A huge oversized scarf can be a great alternative to wearing a jacket on a cool day, or with a jacket if it’s freezing outside.

The scarf has been made with two yarns, from Lion Brand, Mandala, and Touch of Alpaca.

A great way to create texture is to combine two yarns when you are knitting, creating unique looks.

Skill level – Level 2 – Easy (Beginner+).
