Fall 2012 Knitting Fashion Preview

The English Rose hat pattern by the Red Fox and Gown.

I really have no idea where the summer has gone. I think she was a late bloomer and rather shy. Hints of autumn are in the trees and air. I’ve been busy working on design projects for the fall in my other venture, The Red Fox and Gown. Specializing in modern hand knits and pin up fashions, there’s a lot to do. Right now I’m working more on the knitting side of things.

Star Slouch Hat

Among the trends for Fall 2012 are knits of all kinds. I’m having fun designing knitting patterns for easy-to-knit patterns for beginner and intermediate knitters. I also have ready-to-wear items available for purchase.

Edinburgh Mittens.

Morgan Hat.

So far, I have a collection of hats available, along with mittens – just the things you’ll need for fall. There are several more designs to come. If you’re curious to learn more about what’s going with The Red Fox and Gown, check out the blog for news, contests and more.

What are you doing to get ready for fall? What is your favourite accessory this coming season?
