Fall Time is just around the corner, and it is one of the times in the year when most knitters work on their projects, enjoying the outdoors, the crisp air, the mesmerizing color changes, and just that feeling of Knitting in all its splendor.
I love knitting by a window to see the beautiful views of the hills around us, watch the chipmunks and squirrels gather their food, and knit enjoying the aroma of my essential oils in the diffuser. My early morning or evening is all set. I could get lost easily in the project I am working on and in this Blog Post I would like to give you three suggestions of Knitting Projects you can work on this season, either to learn new techniques or to make for Market Prep or to make for gifts.
The following are patterns that I regularly have on my needles and that I have loved to work on, and that constantly get a lot of love in my Shops.
My first suggestion for you is The Magnolia Headband Knitting pattern. It is a perfect project for Intermediate Knitters and for those Adventurous Beginner Knitters that would love to learn Cable Knitting and seaming a small piece. This pattern uses Bulky Weight Yarn, which makes it perfect at a time where we are getting cooler temperatures. Hue and Me is a great option. Lion Brand has quite an array of colors that would fit perfectly with different tastes and to match the beauty of the Fall colors around us.
Pictured here, you see my Magnolia Headband and a couple one of my testers made, Danielle from @loopyknitsco, where you can see clearly how the cables look.
You can find more details about the pattern and purchase it, here.
My second option for you to consider is The Magdalena Beanie.You can knit it if you are a confident beginner or an intermediate knitter. One of the reasons I love to work on this pattern and believe me, I have made so many of them, is the fact that it is such an engaging piece to work on. If you are a beginner with an interest in learning how to knit cables, The Magdalena Beanie is another option for it. The skills you need to knit The Magdalena Beanie are Knitting in the round and how to increase and decrease stitches.
The Magdalena Beanie is one of the patterns that I regularly have on my needles. At the moment, I have three color combos to make them in the next few weeks. There are so many gorgeous Worsted weight yarns out there and some of my favorite versions have been the ones made with Fingering weight yarn and Mohair held together. The result is just exquisite.

The last option I would love to share with you is The Camila Shawl. It is such a beautiful and cozy accessory, and I am sure you will love knitting it and the result. You will follow directions on making this triangular shawl with a cable design on one of the edges. The Camila Shawl is perfect for the Fall and Winter months. Knitting with Bulky yarn, this project does not take long, and you can keep knitting it until your desired length.
We always keep our shawls handy because they are the easiest accessory to put on when we are having breakfast on the deck in the mornings or when we go for walks. We also wear our shawls when being in a restaurant, for example, or just to cuddle in by the fireplace.

I hope you enjoyed this pattern selection and consider working on some of them this Fall. Make your Knitting time as cozy as it can be, enjoy the process, and I would be honored if you would add some of my designs to your To Knit list for this new season.
