Fall foliage may not be at its peak yet here in Ohio, but I am certainly ready to start celebrating my favorite time of year. Each year around this time, I am (without fail) filled with the urge to take country drives and visit every coffee shop I can find. On these fall trips, I plan out knitting projects and Christmas gift ideas that I want to work on once it's too cold to leave the house (Coincidentally, this weather makes me want to do nothing but knit!)
So in my search for knitting patterns, I decided that I would share some of my favorite patterns that I've found, in hopes that you will find some crafting projects to last you through winter :)
Most of the patterns I found were free, either from Ravelry or Knitty, and I've included both knitting and crochet patterns, so enjoy and be sure to check out the links to the patterns :)

Cute and Quick Gift Ideas
I love hand-making all of my Christmas gifts, and sometimes I just need something small to give. Here's a few of my favorite little gift ideas that I would make for nieces, friends, or coworkers.
I don't know a single person who doesn't enjoy receiving a hand knit scarf as a gift. Here's a few simple ideas, and you can always change up the colors of these to make them unisex!
My favorite accessories are those that look sophisticated but are actually very quick and easy to make. Here's a few free patterns that I think fit the bill perfectly!
Similar to accessories, I'm a fan of simple yet sophisticated sweater designs. I don't think it takes a lot of fancy stitches or colors to make a statement, and these sweater patterns, though simple, pack a lot of personality.
Well there you go! Hopefully these designs helped you plan some fall crafts or at least inspired you to break out the needles and start researching some projects you want to start. Stay tuned next week, I will be talking about ways to use yarn without needles!
Thanks for reading and ~keep crafting~ Talk to you next week!
