Knit and Crochet Fall Accessories: Scarves, Hats, Headbands and Fingerless Gloves for Fall
Crochet headband patterns are some of our most popular pages at this time of year. On chilly fall days, you might not want to wear a hat, but you still want to keep your ears warm. Headbands offer you the perfect solution for that.
Fall Sweaters and Shawls
At this time of year, dressing in layers is ideal. Sweaters, wraps and shawls give you delightful options for adding some lovely layering potential to your wardrobe. Below, I’ve posted my favorite fall-friendly sweater pattern books and shawl pattern books.
Fall Baby Projects
Baby blankets, hats, booties and sweaters make lovely fall knitting and crochet projects.
Sunflower Patterns for Late Summer and Early Fall
In the late summer and early fall, sunflowers dazzle us with their beauty, and they offer us their delicious seeds to snack on. For those of us who knit and crochet, they also offer some amazing project inspiration. If you’d like to crochet a sunflower, we invite you to peruse our page of free crochet sunflower patterns. A few of your options are pictured below; click here to see the complete list.

Want to set a spectacular table for Thanksgiving this year? If so, it’s time to whip up some fabulous table settings and table linens.
For an extra special touch, we suggest using crocheted edgings to trim your cloth napkins; then you can place each napkin inside a handcrafted napkin ring, or use an interesting napkin fold to display it to its best advantage.
Placemats make beautiful additions to your Thanksgiving table settings, and they’re also practical; they can keep your table and / or tablecloth from getting damaged by spills, scratches or other mishaps.
Coasters are also helpful additions to the Thanksgiving table, and also for coffee tables and end tables in use wherever your family is hanging out, or entertaining guests.
So there you have it: bunches of suggestions for fall crafts you might enjoy including DIY fall greeting cards, a fall-themed scrapbook mini album, and plenty of fall-friendly patterns to knit and crochet. I hope you’ve enjoyed this roundup, and that you found a new project to get started on — or some new patterns to add to your pattern stash.
