Are you ready to knit all of the super cozy textured patterns so you can wrap yourself up as the temperatures continue to fall? October's featured patterns of the month are the Where the Buffalo Roam Shawl and the Endless Woods Cowl. Both are big, cozy, cabled projects perfect for fall knitting and winter wearing!
Cozy Cabled Triangular Shawl Knitting Pattern
The Where the Buffalo Roam Shawl is one of my absolute favorite designs to date. It's inspired by the dusty plains of Montana (where the buffalo roam), covered in wheat fields… and dirt. This cozy shawl is knit up in DK weight and includes instructions for three alternate designs, if you'd like to change up the look a bit! Add fringe, or don't; it looks great either ways! If you're a cable lover, this shawl is what dreams are made of!
Cozy Textured Cowl with Cables and Slipped Crossed Stitches
If you're looking for cozy… have ever knit with mohair (or siri alpaca)? The Endless Woods Cowl is likely the coziest accessory I own, and it's all because of the mohair. This pattern includes three sizes and four alternate tree patterns (if you'd like your trees to have some variety!). The bottom half - which represents the root system of the forest - consists of cables, and the top half - which shows the trees and branches - uses slipped cross stitches, which can be worked with or without a cable needle. Not a fan of mohair or siri alpaca? You can work the pattern using DK weight yarn instead.
Did you know… both the Where the Buffalo Roam Shawl and Endless Woods Cowl are from the Home Series of patterns that launched just under a year ago? The series included three collections (and a bonus one that came later) that are centered around the idea of having a place where you can feel like you belong. For the longest time, I felt like I didn't belong anywhere, but eventually I finally found that sense of belonging inside of me. Where the Buffalo Roam is from the My Forever Home Collection, which is themed around Montana (where I grew up) and includes 5 DK weight patterns. The collection includes a hat, cowl, fingerless mitts, poncho, and shawl. Endless Woods is from the A New Home Collection, which is based off North Carolina (where I now live) and includes 4 fingering weight patterns. The collection includes a hat, cowl, fingerless mitts, and socks.
Fall Knitting for Colder Weather
What kinds of patterns are you feeling like knitting this fall? All year I've been drawn to knitting simple projects that don't require a lot of brain space… and I'm definitely still there for fall, too! How about you?
