  Mmm, fall is just about here at last (well, in the Northern Hemisphere anyway.) To many, autumn is a time to pick up your needles again after a hot sticky summer and start cranking out woolies for the cold days ahead. Why not get a jump start with this cozy autumn-inspired collection?
I’m thrilled to be part of the Malabrigo Freelance Pattern Project. When I found out that my month was September, and the theme Autumn & Back to School, I was even happier. Autumn is my favorite season. I especially love it in parts of the world where you really get to indulge in that change of seasons -- with red and gold leaves, bright blue skies, that crispness of the air and the softer edge of light. (My four years at West Point, in the Hudson River Valley, firmly cemented that!) This collection, using a range of yarns, includes a variety of techniques: stranding (the Tailgate Mitts), reversible texture stitches (Farewell Summer Cardi & Hat), and lacy cables (Applejack Cowl). I hope you enjoy these patterns, inspired by the nostalgia of autumn.

  Ooh, they just make me want to bundle up and drink hot cider and eat donuts! (I am told that's a uniquely midwestern/northeastern autumn tradition, but I highly recommend it.) Click the photos to see the individual patterns on Ravelry, or you can see the whole collection here. You can also browse all the MFPP patterns on our Ravelry page! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ What on earth is “MFPP”? MFPP stands for Malabrigo Freelance Pattern Project. Every month, we collaborate with an independent designer (or two) to bring you delightfully themed pattern collections! You can see past MFPP collections here or at the Ravelry link above!
