Woodland views, clear skies, blanket-wrapped laps and mugs filled with cider – going “up north” isn’t just for summer vacations. It’s perfect for autumn time, too! Imagine these gorgeous scenes: hiking through woods with trees so orange and yellow, it’s as if they’re on fire; sitting by the dock, bird watching with coffee in hand, wrapped up in your favorite knit cardigan finished from the night before; or late nights spent roasting marshmallows on the patio, dressed in a cozy pullover, slippers and a brand new cowl.

Doesn’t it sound magical? It’s time to face the facts, folks: the Northwoods and fall are meant to go together! And that means there’s no time like the present to start knitting. Thankfully, your new issue has arrived just in time. In this special edition of I Like Knitting, we took our love of cabin life and everything fall has to offer to create possibly our coziest issue to date. From brand new sweaters, including the over-sized and boldly colored Poplar Cardi to the cabin-ready Patchwork Meadow Jacket that’s as cute and quirky as your grandma’s favorite quilt — we’ve got everything you need to go up north in style.

Dive into this new issue filled with socks, scarves, cowls, fall gear and more!
