Autumn Treasuries

Did you know that Etsy is getting rid of treasuries? Apparently they just aren’t used by shoppers very often. I don’t disagree with Etsy’s reasoning, but I will miss these beautiful collections.

Its been a tough week around here. My grandfather died last week, of complications of pneumonia. So, I spent the weekend in Massachusetts for his funeral. It was difficult, but he lived a long life, with few regrets, and up until the last month actually had a very good quality of life. And the end was peaceful. Really, it is the best any of us can hope for. Definitely, it served as a reminder that life is finite, and we should make the most of it.
Of course it was great to see my extended family. We try to have a reunion every year, but not everyone, including me can always make it, so unfortunately we only see each other at weddings and funerals. Naturally, my family does the Irish wake, celebrating life with stories and jokes. Some of my grandparents neighbors, from France, couldn’t believe how loud it was. Even my grandmother got a laugh over that.

Autumn Dreams Cowl: Free Pattern

  This is a project I designed about a month ago, when I was dreaming of cooler weather in the middle of a heat wave. The colors of the yarn just screamed “fall” to me. I actually don’t have too many scarfs, which is unusual for a knitter, and no drapey cowls. So, I thought this would fit in perfectly with my wardrobe for fall, and would elevate a simple outfit of an oversized top and yoga pants (Yes, I am one of those people who thinks leggings are pants). I’ll try to add some pictures of the scarf on me, when the weather is finally cool enough to wear a scarf.
  It is a great travel project because it only requires 1 ball of yarn and is a pretty easy pattern, but the color changes in the yarn and the bias knitting and dropped stitches keep it interesting. It would also be a good pattern for a relative beginner, looking to venture beyond basic the knit stitch. Or for Christmas gifts because the drop stitch knits up so quickly.
One size, 10.5 inches wide, and 76 inches in circumference, which is long enough to loom around the neck twice.
1 ball “Shawl in a Ball” yarn by Lion Brand, I used the “Calming Desert” color way, and either 5.5 mm (US size 9, UK size I) straight or circular knitting needles.
Special Techniques: Drop Stitch
If you’ve never worked in drop stitch, here is a tutorial video I found on YouTube. This tutorial uses 3 wraps per stitch, and my patten only uses two wraps per stitch.
Co 51 sts
Knit, kfb, knit to last 3 sts, k2tog, knit
Knit, wrapping yarn twice in each st
Knit, working the first wrap in each stitch and dropping the second
Repeat this 4 row pattern until your scarf is 76 inches long, or whatever your desired length is.
Cast off, and loosely sew the two ends together. I didn’t block my scarf, I like the drapey, scrunchy look of it.
As always, I’d love to see pictures if you make this scarf, and feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

For fall fashion I’m loving burgundy, olives, navy, greys, and browns. I love long loose layers that are comfy all day. I still love the boots, leggings, and oversized top look. Plaids and menswear fabrics, and dark floral boho prints. What are you loving for fall?
