I finished Latoya, a cabled tank (click on the link for the free pattern from the Berroco website). Compare mine with theirs. I made several modifications to fit me and my yarn. I am mostly happy with it, though I may need to shorten the straps.
I posted the full errata and modifications instructions here. The post is of epic size with a pictorial tutorial for grafting stitches in rib.
My daughter asked for one. I will substitute 2x2 rib instead of 3x3 rib to scale it down for her.

This is not Fall, but it is a cable project. I was browsing the Berroco free patterns library when I stumbled upon Latoya, a knitted asymmetrical tank. The pattern needs some serious copy editing, but the pattern is instantly downloadable for free.
IMHO, it is a beautiful design. I just wish that the website credited the designers. I am just about ready to start the cabled section. My progress pictures and notes are here.

I know the contests are complete but I thought the group might enjoy seeing this small project with a very large cable. I've recently returned to knitting after a long break and have been working on small projects which allow me to try a variety of yarns and knitting techniques.
Pattern: Helmet with Earflaps by Lipp Holmfeld (Vogue Knitting on the Go Chunky Scarves & Hats)
Yarn: 1 skein (8 oz.) Brown Sheep Yarn Co. Burly Spun Wild Oak
Needles: Denise Size 15 and K crochet hook
Comments: Short row shaping left small holes toward the crown which are pretty noticeable in this large diameter yarn (anybody know what I could have done to avoid this?). Very warm and cozy hat nonetheless.I'm happy with the results but probably will not be working with super bulky yarn in the future. This hat is destined for the The Dulaan Project.
P.S. If you've not seen Lamb's Pride Burly Spun here's a picture with the yarn for my other two current projects - Central Park Hoodie in Classic Elite Skye Tweed and socks with Opal Magic.

I joined the Green Hat Along so I could make a St. Patty's day hat and I came up with my own pattern for this loosely based on the Besotted Scarf on Hello Yarn. It's pretty cool, but I have to figure out what exactly I did to shape the crown, I didn't keep good notes towards the end. After I figure it out I will post about it again. In the meantime...
