As sure as the leaves will change, when temperatures drop, knitters gonna knit. Get right to it with easy, cute projects that are all about instant gratification. (P.S. These are so giftable, and the holidays are right around the corner. Just saying.)

Berenice Cabled Headband

Keep those ears toasty without the hat hair! Even a newbie knitter can handle this cabled headband pattern, and if you're not so sure, our startup class is here to help with detailed technique guidance.

Grace Street Hat

Big texture and a pompom on top make this hat an autumn classic, and it's a great way to learn cables. Bonus: Our our has super-smart tips for reading cable charts.

Embroidered Mitts

Mitts are perfect for chilly fall days. They keep your hands warm, while leaving your fingers free to send a text or juggle your coffee and keys. (Prediction: you're going to want more than one pair.)

This just in: you no longer have to wear your heart on your sleeve. In fact, we recommend carrying it around in your hands, literally! These simple knit mitts get a bit of V-Day love with stitched embellishments. (Or any embellishments you want, really.)

Warm Fuzzy Hat

A simple stitch pattern and marled yarn (a technique for holding two different yarns together) combine for a hat that begs to be touched. Add a faux-fur pompom to really push this one over the top (in a good way).

Texture is totally the star of this hat: you've got two different yarns held together for a bit of woolly goodness and a hit of alpaca fuzz. And when you go with neutral tones, the nubby stitch pattern really gets a chance to shine. (But don't worry, it's just knits and purls!). Add a faux fur pompom to really push the fuzz factor over the top.

Waffle Stitch Cowl

Autumn's chill is no match for this neckwarmer — plus it looks super chic with tights and boots. Think of it as an instant style upgrade for last year's sweaters.
