October Pattern Roundup

It's that time again!

That's right, it's pattern roundup time! As is always the case there are so many more patterns out there that I have not profiled, so please let us know in the comments what is making your heart sing this month.


Brecken Sweater by Kate Oates

I usually try not to highlight patterns that you'll have seen a lot of other places, but I had to make an exception for this one because I am dying to make it. I'm not sure why but sometimes sweaters just speak to you.

For the Head

Autumn Dreamer Hat by Kalurah Hudson

The name for this hat is just perfect. It really does conjure up thoughts of acorns and changing leaves and crisp clean air. Knitted in worsted, this is perfect for those extra skeins from sweater projects.

For the Neck

Refracted by Jennifer Dassau

There were so many gorgeous shawls published this month. This one is plays with the standard garter stripes that have become oh so popular to create lines that are constantly changing direction. I love the black and white but I bet it would be cool in bright colors as well.

For the Hands

Zippertooth Mitts by Clare Lakewood

Speaking of fun stripes. Bright Autumnal colors, dark polish, delicious coffee -- I want to live in this picture.

For the Feet

Casual Business by Lisa K Ross

If you are nervous to try colorwork, socks are a great place to practice. And these are only colorwork on the leg, the foot is just stripes! So fun.


Unicorn Baby Booties by Emma Whittle

Unicorn. Baby. Booties. All I can say is check out her patterns because there are more adorable tiny things.

Honorable Mention

Lonely Souls by Teresa Gregorio

This is a sweater I've been waiting on for a while. Pasha and I went to SAFF yesterday with my mom and I almost bought yarn for this several times. The horse silhouette is a great take on a yoke sweater and the sweet hem and back details keep it from approaching too simple.
