Karen Fletcher is a designer and knitter from Ottawa, Canada.  Her love of math and making things made her fall in love with knitting design soon after she learned to knit, she's been selling her designs since 2013.  Her designs can be found at ravelry (http://www.ravelry.com/stores/karen-fletcher-designs) as well as Craftsy.  She loves textured knits, cables, and colourwork, and can often be found knitting a project with those elements while her son "helps" her knit and her daughter unravels her yarn; she is so charmed by their love of yarn that she actually adores this.

Pumpkin Pecan Slouchy Beret

This lacework beret is perfect for fall in so many ways. It adds a touch of warmth while letting you feel the breeze in your hair while also being the perfect shade of burnt orange to match any fall outfit.

Sweet Cinnamon Wrap

Wrap yourself up to keep cozy as we head into fall and winter. This wrap is a fantastic project for newer knitters, and a great introduction to charts and patterns since the pattern always builds on the rows beneath it in a predictable way. Featuring the Cascade Yarns Aereo in Provence (just like the Harvest Poncho pattern also in this issue), this is one of our favorites for the new season.

Vivid Chevron Pillow

Vivid Chevron Pillow

This chevron pillow is a great way to play with color. Make all of the chevron motifs the same color or change each up to make it exactly your own. This is a fairly straightforward intarsia project (there’s no shaping, so you can focus on colorwork if that’s new to you) — just make sure to keep your floats nice and loose!
