It might still be sticky-hot weather here in the Midwest, but signs of fall are already here. Apples trees are sprouting new fruit, stores are decked out with fall-themed décor and coffee shops have released their own versions of pumpkin-spiced everything.
Despite the weather telling me otherwise, I couldn’t be more ready to welcome a shift in seasons and all the fun activities that come with it. Aside from visits to pumpkin patches, making homemade caramel apples and sipping hot apple cider while milling about corn mazes — fall is also the perfect time to start knitting, knitting, knitting! Think new sweaters, new accessories, new cardigans— everything essential you need for fall can be handmade to create a unique piece that will be your favorite all autumn long.
This issue is packed full of ideas to inspire you: a trendy knit bag, the perfect chunky headband, a new poncho, a classic shrug and so much more. Start by knitting the perfect fall sweater: the Kinsley Fair Isle Yoke Sweater. Featuring a gorgeous yellow-and-white yoke over a bold blue sweater body, this cozy piece is ideal for all your fall festivities. And make sure you don’t miss the Raven Plaid Poncho and the Raina Fringe Sweater. Both are destined to be instant classics for the upcoming season.
Plus, think ahead to wintertime and start knitting for even chillier temperatures with the projects featured in our First Frost section. Boasting a classic cabled infinity scarf, a trendy reversible knit beanie and an adorable patchwork cardigan — you’ll want to knit them all.

Happy knitting,
Caitlin Eaton
