Autumn Crochet Patterns

Ah. Fall.

The changing of the leaves 🍂  and light. The new colors of oranges and reds outdoors, that bring with them the illusion of warmth, as the days and nights cool. I just adore this autumnal season and I think it’s my favorite.

Like me, do you feel you want to spend even more time crocheting in the cooler months? This is the time of the year when I really get going with my hook and yarn!

Below I’ve gathered a group of gourd-geous Fall and Thanksgiving-inspired crochet patterns, for you to adorn your home, dress warmly or of course, create gifts for your loved ones. 

Even with the chill in the air, you will feel reassured once you’ve hand-crafted these patterns, that you’ll have a closet full of cozy rugs, sweaters, shawls and gloves to snuggle into once you throw back the covers of your warm and comfy bed on a chilly morning.

Your home will look incredibly welcoming and festive too, with many of the crochet patterns included, working for both Fall and a Thanksgiving themed decoration.

And as ever, remember to come and join my facebook group 👉  facebook group for VIP free patterns and discounts, but it’s mostly about being part of a like-minded community, where you can ask questions and share your project photos.

I look forward to seeing you in the group soon, Happy Hooking my friends! 💜  Lisa
