Annie’s Autumn Bliss Pattern Review


The Autumn Bliss Collection from Annie’s is on our hooks, and we’re in love!

I was giddy with excitement when I got to see a sneak peak of the new Annie’s Signature Designs “Autumn Bliss” collection. Under the direction of Lena Skvagerson, Annie’s Lead Design, this collection of over 40 knit and crochet patterns embodies the colors, textures, and designs of autumn. With simple stitches and unique constructions, each of these patterns produces a timeless piece that will become a wardrobe staple.

The Pattern:
The first pattern from Annie’s that caught my eye was the Tuwa Set, an infinity scarf and matching hat which uses the star stitch, one of my all time favorite crochet stitches. Lena Skvagerson designed this piece using the new Red Heart Boutique Gleam, which I am anxious to try! She chose a neutral color for her sample but I decided to make this piece in self-striping yarn, Knit Picks Chroma Worsted. My next one will be a neutral color, however, I do plan on making many more of these scarves in different shades. Like I said, it’s now a wardrobe staple! The pattern is very clear to follow and, if the star stitch is new to you, there are a few stitch illustrations included. This pattern also includes a comprehensive, illustrated stitch guide on the last page.
The Result:
My Tuwa scarf is finished, so now I have Annie’s Chalet Cardigan on my hook. This is a really classic piece that you will absolutely love. The pattern is just a simple combination of double crochet and chains but the construction and shape are very unique. The drape of the collar and front is graceful and modern. Berroco Vintage worsted weight yarn makes me anxious for the cool autumn nights so I can wrap up in this luxurious cardigan.

Next project:
I’m on the hunt for the Universal Yarn Classic Shades Frenzy bulky yarn used in the Harbor Lights Circle Jacket because the color changes in this yarn really make the design pop. Once again, the stitches used are simple, but the construction is so beautiful and the colors are so impressive. This is a design masterpiece. Harbor Lights Circle JacketI had the chance to interview Lena and she said this pattern was her favorite out of the whole collection. It is the perfect symbol of the gorgeous Autumn Bliss collection. Personally, I can’t decide which of the above three is my favorite, I like them all for different reasons. I can’t wait to see the rest of the collection!
