Hello,  I'm Jen from Craftic and I'll be writing my very first guest post today!

Since Fall is around the corner, I thought it'd be fun to share what I'm planning on making these next few weeks before it gets chilly.

First up is the Knitted Neck Scarf by Martha Stewart.  It's a light alternative to a cowl and kinda perfect for the cooler months until it gets downright cold and you have to switch to something warmer.  The pattern is pretty easy to follow and this doesn't take much yarn at all.  You could definitely finish this over a weekend and have it ready as a gift in no time!

The next thing I'm planning to make is this super simple cowl.  I made up the pattern as I went for this one.  On size 10 needles, cast on 90 stitches and increase 2 stitches every 2 rows for 10 rows.  I prefer this structure since it's snug around the chin and then spreads out and sits well on the chest.  The pictured cowl is made from 2 yarns - one wool, one alpaca - knit together.  This is without a doubt incredibly cozy and warm.

How are you preparing for the cold months?  I'd love to hear about your knitting and crochet projects!
