Golden, crunchy leaves cover the ground while you wear your favorite cardigan – cozy and cable covered – down to the apple orchard for day of apple picking. The weather is cool, but your sweater is warm. Along with comfort foods and fun fall activities, comfy, stylish and warm clothing is a crucial part of the season. Just imagine going through autumn without your favorite cardigan? It’s impossible! If you’re looking at your closet right now and wondering how you’ll make it through the chilly season ahead, fear not because we’ve got you covered. In this new issue of I Like Crochet, we’ve blended autumn’s rich color palette with classic crochet construction to create pieces that you’ll want to crochet year after year.
Start with a showstopper: The Vivien Duster Cardigan. Inspired by the colors of the sunset, this bold piece is made from the bottom up with minimum seaming, making it a great project for a variety of skill levels, including beginners.
Next, create some fall staples by crocheting a gorgeous cabled vest, new cardigans and ponchos, an incredibly fashionable round purse, and my personal favorite: a sweater blazer. Whether you’re hoping for cool and casual or are craving an elevated fall glam look, the Filippa Crochet Sweater Blazer nails effortless style like no other project. It’s the garment you’ll be grabbing all season.
Once you’ve finished creating new fall favorites for your wardrobe, it’s time to give the living room some love. Introducing the Luna Bobble Stitch Lapghan. Made with super bulky yarn, this ultra cozy blanket is perfect for nights spent indoors, snuggling on the sofa with piping hot apple cider.

Happy crocheting,
Caitlin Eaton
