Free Pattern Friday: Fall Foliage

This week for free pattern friday, I thought I would go a little untraditional. I love fall garments but  I couldn't pass up a chance to share this gorgeous fall themed wreath idea that I want to make for my front door! There were so many different leaf motifs and fall foliage patterns to choose from on Ravelry that I could only pick my favorites. You can pick as many or as few leaf designs or colors as you like. Make it to match your house, or to stand out. I have so much red in my stash that if I make a red and green one it can double as a holiday wreath too.  I could even add a few snowflakes once December rolls around. 

I am starting with the knit pieces because I found the most perfect "Woodland Wreath" by Frankie Brown, with leaves and acorns. She has so many different components that you could add to your own wreath to really make it one of a kind! I think for my wreath I am going to mix and match her knit pieces with some of the crochet pieces below. I also love her little toad stools. That will be a must for me. 

For the crochet pieces I found this really lovely and wonderfully accurate "Oak Leaf" pattern by "In the Yarn Garden" on Ravelry. These would make a lovely companion to the knit oak leaves by Frankie.

These "Acorns and Nuts for Autumn" by Sonja Van Der Wijk are just as cute as a button! I might even make a whole bowl of these to be the center-piece of my thanksgiving table.

There is so much you can do with yarn and making art objects that bring you joy, I feel, is a really big part of why I am a knitter. I love wearing my work, but being able to appreciate non wearables is just as enjoyable!
