The Colors of Fall Knit Blankets

What do you love most about autumn? The changing colors of nature are one of the first responses people typically give to that question. If you, too, love the rich mustards, pumpkins, and maroon shades of fall, you’re in luck, because some of these patterns do feature those autumn colors.

However, people also talk a lot about fall sports and going back to school. Therefore, we’ve made sure to throw in some school spirit blanket patterns as well. You can make those in your own school colors. Of course, you can also just choose two colors and make one of those blankets for anyone!

And plenty of people also prefer neutral colors for fall knit blankets. Things are starting to get really busy in life. Soothing, neutral colors can offer a calming balm during that time. So, we’ve included thick and cozy knit fall blankets in cream colors and other neutrals as well.
