September is here – the school buses are back and the mornings are definitely getting cooler. Sometimes that little chill in the air is all it takes to get inspired to start a new knitting project… But a great new pattern helps, too! I’ve pulled together some fun fall project ideas from independent designers using our yarns.
First up is this cute hat and fingerless glove set called Melynda Lee, designed by Char Kohl. I love the stitch textures that were used, and Comfort is the perfect yarn for showing them off:
Then there’s the Park Ave Cardigan from Kelly Daniels. Knit in Vintage DK, this classic cardigan features deep ribbed trims and a generously sized collar. This is a perfect garment for layering as the weather turns colder:
For the younger set, there’s this adorable shawl collar cardigan pattern, Arlo & Alice by Elizabeth Smith. Knit in Vintage Chunky and sized from newborn up until 8 years, the pattern offers two different stripe patterns and an optional patch pocket:
If you’re looking for a project for a new baby, check out the Sun Bonnet Sue Baby Blanket from Linda Gavaldon. Worked in Comfort, this pattern features a textural design and is edged in an eyelet pattern:
Last but not least, we have this intriguing blanket design called the Layer Cake Blanket by Larissa Brown. The tilting short rows add an unusual texture, and Comfort’s huge shade range offers loads of interesting color possibilities:
We’re always so happy when independent designers use our yarns – can’t wait to see what they’ll do next!

I am not sure how I can leave this comment for you but I hope it will go to the right person. I am 80 yrs old and do not want my email filled up with a lot of marketing that I have no use for, My grandson will be graduating from college this next year and would like to knit a scarf for him. I saw a man’s Barroco scarf that looked real good but never could find it again. There were Jura, feldspar,, Cuvier and Beagle and I never could bring them up to see what they looked like. I want a nice scarf pattern that would be suitable for him to wear for years to come plus the yarn needs to be soft, This is all I am looking for.
It would be appreciated if you would be able to hook me up with the right person within Berroco.
Thanks in advance for your help.

Good luck on your pattern search!
Hello Norah and Amanda, I am making the Kyle Boy sweater and I am stuck on the left front piece. For the smallest size it says to decrease every RS 15 times (5 stitches remaining) etc. with it ending up at 5 inches from arm hole marker. When I do that it ends up to be about 8 inches long – not 5 inches. Am I reading the pattern wrong? Thanks for your help.
