This is a project I worked on last fall but it seemed too late to share it when it was complete. Now with some cooler temperatures on the horizon, I'm sure many of you are itching to start some fall knitting projects. This hat and scarf set, adorned with a falling leaves lace pattern,  is named for one of our favorite local cider mills. The cozy, pumpkin color wool yarn from Cascade pairs nicely with fresh glass of cider and some warm cinnamon doughnuts.

The Scarf Pattern can be found HERE.

These are beautiful! Thanks for sharing your work!

I love the beautiful pattern in the hat and how nicely the decreases are worked into the design. I look forward to trying it. Thanks!

Hi, I love your hat and scarf set and would love to learn how to knit them but for the third time already I just couldn't finish round 3 because I kept missing the last knit stitch. Help please.
