Time to wrap up


It's getting decidedly chilly in the evenings! Definitely sweater and scarf weather, and perhaps it will soon be time to bring in the firewood for a cozy log fire. Yes, the evenings are drawing in and Autumn is upon us.

So, I am starting a series of blogposts with some great ideas for this year's Autumn and Winter knits, starting with one of Anna's wonderfully colourful designs, her Autumn Scarf. I love Anna's sense of colour - she brings such a fun element to all of her knitting patterns and the Autumn Scarf is no exception.


The scarf is worked in Berrocco Vintage Chunky yarn, a wool / acrylic mix which is soft, warm and knits up quickly. 

The design is simple yet bold. With its diagonal colourblock pattern and irregular spacing, the effect created is eye-catching and can look very different depending on how the scarf is worn. The scarf measures 150cm / 60 ins long so is a great length for either draping round the neck or wrapping once or twice around for extra warmth. 

See my earlier blogpost, How long shall I make this scarf? for more info on scarf length.


The Autumn Scarf is one of the many patterns showcased in our new E-Book, Reversible Knitting Stitches, and features Garter Stitch - one of the first patterns that every beginner knitter learns to use. The stitch is truly reversible and works well on its own or as a border.

It is a beautifully flat stitch so is a great choice for a scarf such as the Autumn Scarf. It does need to be worked at a consistent tension to look really neat but is easy to work and gives a lovely warm finish.


If you would like to see more details about Anna's Autumn Scarf knitting pattern, then please visit her website: www.annaravenscroft.com

The new Reversible Knitting Stitches E-Book is available on the iBookstore, Amazon Kindle and from Anna's website, Kiku Knits.

Next time I will be looking at another scarf, but this time one with a cozy hood attached!

Until then, Happy Autumn Knitting!
