Seasonal Colorways for Yarn Projects: Fall Edition

Written by Kate Curry

Here at Darn Good Yarn, our favorite way to get excited about a new season is planning seasonally-themed projects. Fall is sneaking up on us in a big way. The weather's cooling down, kids are back in school, and true to the nature of the Northeastern United States, the leaves are starting to change color. We're getting excited to hunker down into the cooler part of the year and start working on some cozy projects! We believe there's no better way to get inspired than by beautiful colors and textures, so...

We've picked out a few of our favorite Darn Good Yarns for raking in that Autumn Inspiration. We've linked all of the autumn recommendations, making it easy as pie to find the yarn and its corresponding patterns! Keep scrolling for some seriously beautiful fall color ways.

This yarn would knit, crochet, or weave beautiful into a wide variety of garments, cold weather accessories, or home textiles.
