Of course, we’re the kind of super enthusiast knitting lovers that will happily knit just about anything all year round, but there’s just something so magical about fall that gets us particularly excited to make some new scarves, wraps, and (our particular favourite) shawls! That’s why we always have our eyes peeled for fantastic new fall shawl knitting patterns that we’ve never tried making before.
If you’re feeling just as enthusiastic as we are, if not more, about the idea of knitting some new fall shawl patterns this autumn, check out this list of 15 awesome ideas, designs, and tutorials that we’ve come across so far in our search for inspiration and guidance!
1. Stratus wrap
When you say you’re interested in knitting a shawl, are you really actually interested in knitting an accessory that has the triangular shape of a shawl but you’re actually more in need of something larger, like a warm wrap? In that case, we have a feeling you’ll get along very well indeed with something like this Stratus Wrap pattern from Two of Wands that was originally inspired by and got its name from the wispy clouds in the sky!
2. Campside Cozy shawl
Are you the kind of knitter who has always had a soft spot for eyelets, whether it’s because you love the way they look or because you love the process of knitting their yarn overs? Well, either way, it sounds to us like you just might be the perfect person to give this lovely Campside Cozy shawl outlined step by step on Pom Pom Mag a try! We like how it has both detail and simplicity all in one place.
3. Carol’s Clever Little Shawl
Perhaps instead of loving just yarn overs, you’re actually the kind of knitting enthusiast who has a pair of rather contrasted favourites, like a love for simple stitches but also an appreciation for interesting structuring that’s a little more advanced? In that case, we have a feeling this pattern from Carol Sanders, called Carol’s Clever Little Shawl, might be a little more up your alley. We love the way they’ve designed a loophole right into the front so the shawl will stay closed around your shoulders.
4. Alegria Shadow Shawl
If you’ve never made the kind of shawl that involves yarn overs and eyelets but uses them as a central growth line from the centre, then we’re sorry to tell you that you’ve been missing out on a fun classic as far as knitting fall shawls is concerned! Remedy that situation with something like this easy but amusing Alegria Shadow shawl outlined step by step in a pattern from Noble Knits.
