A Note from the Editor

Freshly fallen leaves adding pops of color to the green grass, shiny apples coated in thick caramel, cozy evenings spent lounging by the fire – it’s hard to imagine a more inviting season than autumn. And I don’t know if it’s just me, but the itch to create becomes almost unbearable during these cooler months. And even though I have a pretty large selection of warmer knits, I still find myself saving patterns to my Ravelry profile at an alarming rate. This makes me wonder: can someone ever have too many cowls or sweaters?

Here at the I Like Knitting headquarters, we like to think the answer to that question is a resounding no. If you’re of a similar mindset, you’re probably already on the hunt for some fresh and exciting designs to grace your knitting needles. That’s where this issue comes into play. Inside this latest edition, you’ll discover a brand new selection of cozy patterns featuring wearables like the trendy Buffalo Plaid Headband and Mitts Set and the oh-so-comfy Alpine Cardi. Both patterns are perfect for autumn and winter weather – and perhaps even as early Christmas gifts! With vests, sweaters, scarves, ponchos, hats, socks and more, we’ve included a pattern to cater to every knitter’s tastes in this pattern-packed issue. We can’t wait for you to see them all!

Happy knitting,
