In the fall, we see some of the most brilliant colors all around us. There’s warmth and bright autumn hues with reds, oranges, and yellows. It’s always fun to see the piles of leaves (and even jump in a few) as well as how the earth is preparing itself for the cool winter ahead. During this time, it’s great to have your yarn stocked up in autumn colors to crochet (or knit) decorations because there are so many amazing ideas for fall bunting, potholders, tablerunners, and more that you’ll want to make before the holiday season sets in and Christmas crafting takes over!
