Earlier in the fall I promised to post a round up of fabulous fall patterns, and I’m finally posting them! I meant to do this much earlier in the fall, but I’ve been spending a lot of time crocheting larger projects and they are taking longer than I wanted. Full story on those later, when I actually get a chance to share them with you. I want them perfect before I showcase them here on Pretty In Crochet.
Back to the fabulous fall patterns! Fall is my favourite time of year. It’s cool and cozy and there’s so much you can do with fall wear to dress up your look. And there are dozens of cute crochet fall patterns out there! I can’t wait to try many of them–and meant to this fall season but like I said, I’ve been so busy crocheting I haven’t had time to try my hook at these smaller projects. I’ll get around to them though!
Pumpkin Treat-or-Trick Bag. Who doesn’t love Halloween? And I think if you start this project ASAP you’ll be able to whip it up in time for your little one on Halloween night. Sewrella’s patterns are always amazing and therefore this fabulous project had to be included. The pattern is available for free.
Scarecrow Cat and Crow Pattern. For those of you who love amigurumi, this pattern is super super cute! I found it on Enchanted Ladybug, and she has some other cat patterns too for Halloween. Definitely worth checking out. This pattern might have been more appropriate for Thanksgiving (and here in Canada we have already had our turkey day) but if you’re like me (tackling way too many projects and underestimating the amount of time they might take) you might want to start a year in advance just in case. And this pattern is free which is awesome!
Four Hour Fall Sweater. I mentioned I am working on larger projects that are taking a lot of time right? I’ll let you in on a little secret–they are sweaters! They are a learning curve for me, but I like the idea of being able to hook up a sweater in four hours so I just had to share this. Plus, the colours are very natural and it looks really cozy. You can find the pattern on Ravelry for free.
Ghost Coasters. I have been wanting to make these for a couple of years now and simply have not gotten around to them! I’m so mad at myself! But believe you me, these ghost coasters are getting made one day. It would help if I’d remember to buy the yarn for this project too. But don’t you think these would be adorable to have out at a Halloween party? Personally, I’d have them out a couple of weeks before Halloween just to get into the spirit of spook 😉 The pattern is available for free from Red Heart.
Ripple Lace Afghan. I love the fall colours in this one! And as the cooler weather sets in, this would be perfect to snuggle under with a book or while you crochet. The stitch pattern looks lovely too, and this is featured in cooler colours on Ravelry. The pattern is not free, but every now and then I do like to support designers who have worked hard on a fabulous pattern, as this one appears to be.
Red Apple Crochet Baby Hat. This would look super sweet on a little one! Perfect for photos, and a sweet keepsake. I’d definitely crochet this piece if I had a baby in the family to gift it too. It’s free on Ravelry–lots of fall patterns there it seems–so the price is right!
Crochet Star Stitch Pumpkin Coffee Cozy. The Stitchin’ Mommy has tons of awesome patterns, and I think this one would be super easy to hook up. It’s pumpkin spice season, so it’d go perfect with your daily caffeine break. I think you could also play around with the colours and use shades of orange and brown as well to suit your style. The pattern is free too.
Goldenrod Cowl. You can find this pattern free here on Pretty In Crochet. Yes, I know it’s shameless promotion, but I’m unashamed. And I’m rather proud of this project, so you’d like a cowl, this might be the pattern for you 🙂 It adds a nice fall feel to any outfit I think, and would look great under a denim jacket.
I hope this round up has introduced you to some great crochet patterns. I hope to try out a couple, and when I do I will share photos on the blog. Which fall pattern are you going to try out? Share in the comments section, and have a fabulous time crocheting.
