Dear Knitting Enthusiast,
Welcome to the September/October 2021 issue of I Like Knitting. The seasons continue to turn, and as sure as we know pumpkin-spiced everything is just around the corner, this is a good time to get a jump on the cooler weather with patterns ranging from cozy and casual to festive and bright. It’s great to have so many knitting options!
Get ready for fall with a new sweater, a cozy shrug, an eye-popping poncho, and more! You’re not limited to the traditional autumn colors, either—we have plenty of patterns in colors that are warm, cool, and hot!
The September/October 2021 issue of I Like Knitting is packed with stunning projects from some of our favorite designers. There are patterns for the expert knitters among us, as well as patterns for beginning and intermediate knitters. You’ll find your happy knitting place right here!
Now on to the knitting!
In just two weekends, you can have this dazzling Raven Plaid Poncho ready to wear—or to give as a gift! This poncho designed by Stana D. Sortor looks way more complicated to knit than it is. Just make the two rectangular pieces, stitch them together, and you’re ready for the cooler weather!
Once those autumn winds start blowing, you’ll be reaching for something warm to keep the chill off. The Kinsley Fair Isle Yoke Sweater by Sierra Morningstar is just the thing! A classic yoke sweater inspired by traditional Scandinavian knitwear, this sweater is knit in the round from the top down. Make it in bold gold and deep blue hues, or choose the color palette you like best!
When you hear the word “houndstooth,” do you think “stuffy”? Get a look at this bold, bright autumn bag and prepare to add some extra pizzazz to your outings. Brenda Castiel designed this oversized classic houndstooth pattern, Kaleidoscope Houndstooth Bag, in vibrant, no-yawn colors. Start with a rectangular bottom, then pick up the stitches and finish it in the round. Houndstooth will never be the same after this!
Get ready for coziness with a full dose of whimsy. The Raina Fringe Sweater by Evelyn Siatra is a delicate combination of a straight silhouette with drop-shoulder, billowing sleeves. The center panel is a showstopper pattern of cables that form diamonds and leaves, and it’s finished off with a light fringe on the side! Knit this sweater when you need something to remind you not to take things too seriously. This sweater is serious fun!
Beginning knitters deserve something beyond the basic scarf or hat. The Shayna Shrug by Katrina Walser takes simple to a new, elegant level. Subtle stitch patterns in this mostly rectangular pattern combine to form an intriguing texture. Fold, seam, and do a little knitting in the round, and you’ll have a super shrug to get you through the chilly days of autumn.
