A Note from the Editor

Get ready for a shift in seasons with this gorgeous issue featuring the perfect collection of summer-to-fall patterns. Beat the last of summer’s heat with frilly favorites, including the Dressed to Frill Top (on the cover) and the Frilled with Joy Peplum Tunic. Each piece adds some fun flair to your wardrobe.

When the chill sets in, look to cozier patterns like the elegant Keyhole Pullover, Buttoned Poncho Coat or the Autumn Aztec Socks (a must see!). No matter which project you start with, you’ll discover new classics that you’ll return to each year in anticipation of a new season.

Happy knitting!
