Autumn Garden


Something special is in the air; a magical glint to the light glistens while the garden outside prepares for its winter’s rest. As the days shorten and warm afternoons cool into crisp evenings, settle in with Autumn Garden for some extra knitting time.

Knitting begins with three little stitches. The number of stitches increases on right-side rows, and the tiny triangle turns into a pleasing shawl as the days begin to grow noticeably shorter.

Autumn Garden is also available as part of Grandma's Garden, a five-pattern ebook celebrating gardens, gardening, and the love of flowers.
