Autumn must be THE season for knitters and knitwear designers. It is all about the cosy knits, thicker yarns and warm wool.

To give yourself time for pattern writing, editing, photography and test knitting now is the time to be thinking about those Autumn patterns.

For Autumn 2022 oversized is in, with lots of neutral colours but some unexpectedly bright splashes.

Fancy joining me for some fibre fun? I am running "Stashdown Superstars" to help you get using some of those woolly (or non wool!) goodies you have got hidden away.

Have a rummage in your stash and see what you could make with what you have. Share the fun on Instagram and Facebook with stash peeks, project ideas and stashbusting chat, use #StashdownSuperstars to share your projects.

If you are struggling with what to make, my Project Picker pdf can give you ideas for different amounts of different weight yarns - sign up to my newsletter for the free download.

Ink is a textured vest that is perfect for transitional weather. Worked in DK weight yarn from the top down, shown in Inkpot farm DK, a fab 100% British wool yarn.

Reasons to love this pattern:

  • Sized to fit chest measurements from 63-161 cm / 25” to 63” depending on your choice of ease.

  • The ribbed texture has loads of stretch.

  • Working a vest means no sleeve island to get stuck on - work the body, add edgings and you are done.

  • No seaming, weave in the ends and the vest is ready to wear.

  • Use this pattern as a stash buster - the sample shown uses just 200g of yarn for a size 36" bust worn with negative ease and a slightly cropped style.

  • DK yarn gives a balance of speedy knitting with warmth, but not too hot.

  • Adjust the pattern to suit your style - adjust armhole depth, body length, ease.

  • A perfect piece for variable Spring and Autumn weather, when a full sweater is too much.

  • Team it with a smart collared shirt, jeans and boots for a great look.
