Knitting Patterns for Fall Decor
What says fall more than acorn and oak leaves?
Use up your leftovers as you create these adorable acorns for your home or children in your life.
Acorn measure from 1.8 to 2.17 inches (4.5 – 5.5 cm) while the leaves measure from 3.55 to 5.12 inches (9 – 13 cm).
The pattern calls for worsted weight yarn.
2 Linden Leaf Ornament by ElvesWorld (Paid)
These beautiful leaves are roughly 5.5 inches (14 cm) long. It’s a quick knitting project for the intermediate knitter and you can use them on their own or as a garland. The pattern includes photos to guide you through the knitting.
The pattern calls for 4-ply or DK weight yarn.
3 Leaf Garland by Arianna Frasca (Paid)
These simple leaves are great for a beginner knitter.
Some of the ways Frasca suggests you use these knitted leaves are as a garland in September, for Halloween, at Thanksgiving, as ornaments, gift toppers, in a bowl as decor, or for Christmas.
Sizes are varied by selecting different yarn weights and needles sizes. The pattern calls for 4-ply yarn.
4 Autumn Oak Leaves by ElvesWorld (Paid)
These beautiful oak leaves are a testimony to the importance of colour choice. By going for muted, mottled colours you can create leaves that are incredibly lifelike.
This pattern is suitable for the intermediate knitter. If you are a beginner, don’t be afraid, it’s a great way to learn and practise those skills that will help you level up in knitting.
A finished leave is about 5.5 inches (14 cm) long. The pattern calls for DK or chunky yarn.
5 Hoard by Hunter Hammersen (Paid)
I don’t know what it is about acorns but I’ve always loved them and this pattern is no exception. With a real cupule (acorn cap) and beautiful finishing, these acorns are adorable.
If you can’t find acorn caps you can buy them on Amazon or Etsy.
The pattern calls for 3-ply, 4-ply, sport, DK or worsted weight yarn so you probably have something in your stash that will work.
6 Stuffed Knit Acorns by Midknits (Paid)
Speaking about adorable acorns, take a look at these beauties. Just like when it comes to knitted pumpkins, don’t be afraid of using white or speckled white yarns.
These acorns knit up big. The small one is 4 inches tall and the big one is 6 inches. The acorns are knitted from the bottom up and the pattern comes with photos and clear instructions for every step.
This pattern calls for Aran weight yarn.
7 Forest Mushrooms by Aga Tutak (Paid)
These adorable little mushrooms are great stash busters. Each mushroom only requires 5-7 m of two colours.
This is a quick project suitable for beginners to intermediate knitters. You can make these for decor or as wonderful toys for nature-loving children.
The pattern calls for DK weight yarn.
Speaking of knitted decor that doubles as toys, who can resist this little guy. Made of pompoms this little hedgehog is adorable and ready to hibernate in the fall leaves.
With photos supporting you at every step of creation, both the hedgehog and the leaves are suitable projects for a beginner knitter.
The pattern calls for 4-ply yarn.
9 Scarecrow by Rainebo (Paid)
I’m not sure this scarecrow would actually scare any crows. He looks more like the type who would sit down and let them eat the seeds out of his hand. He’s friendly, adorable and would make a lovely addition to any fall decor.
This Scarecrow is knit in the round with his limbs added as you work along. He’s a big guy, measuring 10 inches when sitting.
This pattern is suitable for an intermediate knitter and calls for worsted and Aran weight yarn.
