Did you know tomorrow is October?
You may not have realized with all things pumpkin making their presence known weeks ago, but September is finally making way for the best month of the year (ok so I'm probably a little biased). But before we let it go we should look back at all the awesome knitting this month has given us.
Take Five by Annamária Ötvös
There's nothing quite like a striped fingering weight garment. Except maybe a striped fingering weight Henley. I love everything about this, from the neckline to the way the stripes continue down the sleeves. Expect this to float at the top of my queue for a while as I hunt for the perfect yarn.
Finn by Kat Riddell
You might have already seen Finn crop up in your pattern highlights on Ravelry, and for good reason. This all over lace cardigan is perfect for transitional weather and on a personal note I can see myself wearing it over nursing tanks this Fall. Guess I should get knitting.
Winter Sunset by Gabrielle Danskknit
This is just one of several kids patterns that Gabrielle Danskknit published this month. I love the simplicity of it for all ages and genders. And the use of buttons on both sides gives it a flexibility that is very appealing.
Sweet Pie Socks by Jessica Gore
At first glance these appear to be basic textured socks. But look closer. Are those lateral braids? On socks? Be still my heart!
Diamonds in the Rough by Maggie Murphy
I promise I did not pick this just because of the color choice, which is stunning. This checks so many more boxes. It is knit in Quince and Co Chickadee, it is simple garter with a bit of interest, and it is easily wearable, making it a great option if you're starting on some gift knitting.
Pandamonium by Karin Michele
It's a colorwork hat. Covered in Pandas. Can I really say more?
Bird Leg Warmers by Munro Sisters3
It is no secret that I love legwarmers, so I was super excited to see these come across my search this month. The pattern is designed for Aran weight yarn so even though it is a charted colorwork pattern it won't take five months to knit up.
So these are what I'm loving this month. What patterns did you find that I may have missed?
