Fall Ready: 8 Free Patterns That Work Up Fast

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Fall is officially here! If you’ve been dreaming of cooler weather it’s here, or should be soon enough. Get your wardrobe ready with some quick accessories projects.

Tip: These also make great quick gift ideas if you find yourself procrastinating on holiday crafting. (Pretty much me every year. Not alone, right?)

Quick Knits For Cool Weather

Huldra Hat

Hats are my favorite fast project. They’re practical and you can experiment with colors and textures you might not wear on a larger garment. This classic ear flap hat is knit using Scarfie yarn, a bulky weight acrylic/wool blend.

Pike Street Hat

Pike Street super bulky knit hat pattern in Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick.

On size 11 needles and Wool-Ease Thick & Quick yarn, this is truly a quick knit project. And it’s a classic that can easily be worn by anyone.

Dobbs Ferry Cowl

Size 19 needles! Need I say more? This large cowl sits on or over your shoulders. Whip it up in 6 balls of your favorite Wool-Ease Thick & Quick color.

Boro Park Cowl & Headband Set

Headbands come in handy when it’s not quite cool enough for a hat or when messing up our hair just isn’t an option. This super bulky set provides a little extra warmth before full on winter weather kicks in.

Cool Crochet Quick

Anders Cowl

Fast, fun, warm. The Anders cowl is crocheted in Homespun Thick & Quick. This means the large stitches have great texture.

Iconic Cap

The name pretty much sums up this classic hat silhouette. Crocheted in Touch of Alpaca yarn.

The Tilda Cowl

Two colors of Heartland Yarn ebb and flow in this pretty cowl. Mix and match for your perfect color combination.

Herringbone Hat

Buttons or no buttons. Pom or no pom. Mix and match or use both accents to make this hat suited to you. Crocheted in the classic worsted weight wool blend, Wool-Ease.

  • would love to get the free pattern for the Huldra Hat my grandma would really like it I am sure – How do I get this pattern ThANKS bARB

  • Like the crochet and knit designation up front. Thx for free patterns as many are unable to use certain yarns due to Difficulties with rashes or other allergic reactions. Substitutions are paramount. Like to see sugesstiions.

  • How did Lion Brand come to name the Dobbs Ferry cowl? I live in Dobbs Ferry! Thanks,

  • Hi there, a lot of times if pattern calls for a certain yarn, and I don’t have it or similar , I will check gauge, find a yarn that works and change out that. Also if wool is used I use acrylic as some people are allergic to it. Plus if it is a bulky weight, and I have worsted, I double yarn. Still check gauge and go from there

  • Thanks for the great patterns! I plan to start making right@ away.

  • Alpaca yarn

  • All the patterns!

  • Would like to get knitting directions for children’s scarves ages 5 and adults can you email me?

  • Why so MANY crochet patterns? I am a knitter, plan to remain a knitter, and would appreciate
    a FEW patterns in knitting! It’s really frustrating.

    • Hi! I’m primarily a knitter too! 🙂 I try and split these lists as evenly as possible between knit and crochet. The first four here are knit.
