Autumn Leaves






A leaf obsession started a few weeks ago when I found these adorable felt leaf coasters.  I made about a dozen of them out of the merino felt I dyed last year.  {You can see them here on Instagram.} 

Then I got tired of all that hand stitching {because it takes me forever} and the leaf project was done. I'm keeping some for gifts and a few will end up in the shop.

In the meantime, our woods have become the most glorious shades of autumn.  Leaves to crunch under our feet and just the right amount of crisp in the air.  It's become our morning tradition.

Leaves.  I just can't get them out of my mind.  

Into my stash I went for the perfect color of yellow. This dandelion dyed wool was just right for an autumn leaf.  I started knitting until I came up with the same shape as the felt version and wrote up the pattern.  I adore these leaves. They're increadibly fast to knit up {seriously, it took me about fifteen minutes once I got in my groove} and just the right size for a cup of coffee.   And the twine stems... Aack! Luke also came up with the idea of a bunting for the window, instead of our yearly beeswax leaves.  I suggested he get his needles out and start knitting.  We'll see.  His knitting has been pretty sporadic lately.

If you'd like to make your own set of Autumn Leaves, you can find the pattern Etsy,  Ravelry or buy now through the button below.  If you're on Instagram, you can use #knitautumnleaves to share your leaf obsession!

    1. It's absolutely gorgeous around here right now. The wind is supposed to pick up tomorrow evening and I suspect the leaves will all be gone.

    1. I'm so glad to be saying goodbye to summer. I can't belive I'm saying it, but I'm such a winter girl now.

  7. Liz,
    I am trying to work up the pattern to feature on my blog - but I am not getting the kws - can you explain?
    and then when the pattern says S12kw - do you really mean slip 12 stitches?
    Thanks - I want to make these as they are so pretty.

    1. Aaak, thanks for the update! It should be slip 2 stitches. :) The kws means that you knit the wrap and the stitch together. When you come to a wrapped stitch, slip the stich onto your right needle, pick up the wrapped stitch with the left needle and put the slipped stitch back onto the left needle. Knit both of the stitches together. This eliminates the hole created from a wrapped stitch. If you like the look of the hole, it's not necessary. I hope that helps, if not, be sure to let me know and I'll see if I can try to expain it better.
