Shawls For Fall and Winter

Fall knitting doesn’t have to just be about cowls, scarves, and hats. Shawls are perfect for fall or winter weather, especially shawls that are knit in a heavier yarn or stitch pattern. Two of my shawl patterns are perfect for this. Texture & Colour is an asymmetrical shawl worked in three colours of DK weight yarn. The Indulgence Wrap is a rectangular shawl also worked in a DK weight yarn.

Most of my shawl patterns can easily be adjusted to use a heavier weight yarn. The Eyelet Chain ShawlLovely Eyelets and 8 Simple Stripes are three that would work very well for fall or winter. Choose a heavier yarn and a larger needle and follow the pattern as written. These patterns are written for any amount of yarn.

And finally, here are two free shawl patterns that are both done in a DK weight yarn. The Truly Triangular and Totally Triangular Scarves are easy to knit and completely free!

Enjoy your fall knitting!
