Cooler weather, fall color tones and all things cozy is what comes to my mind when I think about The Autumn Shawl. This is such a relaxing knitting pattern. It is made mainly with a 2 row repeat, so it’s perfect for knitting and watching tv or a great beginner knit pattern.

If y’all have followed me for very long then you know that the majority of the patterns that I design are crochet. Well, I’m trying to change that and add more knitting patterns! I started knitting before I started crocheting and I still enjoy doing it.

And, if you don’t knit yet, but would like to learn then you need to check out my Knitting 101 Series. I start at the very beginning and go over the basics to teach you to knit! It’s so much fun and I’m sure that you will enjoy it!

Back to my beautiful Autumn Shawl, I used a striped yarn that I think worked up absolutely beautiful! This yarn has the perfect fall color tones and gives me all the cozy feels. It is I Love This Yarn in the color Brighton Roads.

Of course, I was photo bombed (as always, lol) by George

Anytime that I’m outside, he thinks that he needs to help me. I’m not sure exactly what he had his sights set on, but he wouldn’t look at the camera. Let me rephrase that….He wouldn’t look at the camera with his eyes open. He would shut them, lol. He’s such a little dork. But, I love him.
