Autumn has well and truly arrived and as we say goodbye to the last days of summer sunshine it’s time to welcome those dark chilly mornings and gorgeous golden colours on the trees. Autumn’s cooler months mean that keeping wrapped up warm is essential, especially with all those autumn outdoor events coming up. From bonfires to Halloween and winter walks, adding some knitwear to your wardrobe is essential. Here’s the key items you should introduce:
A Roll Neck Jumper
A fashion essential and an amazing way to keep warm for everyone, a chunky knit roll neck jumper is a wardrobe staple for the colder months. Wear with jeans and boots for a laid back look that’s really versatile and can take you from the bonfire to the pub afterwards. For the kids, roll neck jumpers look cute with jeans, trousers or skirts and fit snuggly under coats and jackets. Roll neck jumpers can be dressed up or down so it’s worth investing in several colours to get you through the chilliest time of year once you find the ones you like.
Scarves are an autumn essential for the whole family. The best way to wrap up warm is with a cosy woolly scarf and everyone in the family needs one from the kids to your husband. A cute idea for families is knitting your own scarfs at home. With Deramores you can purchase all of your knitting essentials from different coloured yarns to knitting looms and patterns, so even beginners can get involved. When knitting scarves, go as colour crazy as you like but try to think about the coats you’d like to wear them with to make sure they don’t clash as you’ll be wearing it a lot to those outdoor events.
Hats and Gloves
Hats and gloves are another autumn knitwear essential to invest in. If you’re a confident knitter you could knit your own bobble hat and mittens to match the scarf. If not, there’s plenty of places where you can pick up a cute hat and scarf set for all the family. From beret styles to beanies and floppy hats, go for whatever style you prefer to keep your head nice and toasty this autumn.
Knitwear is an autumn staple, looks fashionable and a great way to keep the family warm. As you can make your own knitwear it also makes a great crafty activity for families on a rainy afternoon and helps to save money!
