Fall Outfit Inspiration: Menswear

I can already feel the Fall cold in the evenings and I know Summer is on it’s way out! Fall style to me is about adding cozy layers and easy to wear shapes. That is why I was so excited when we launched our new pattern collection, Dapper. Menswear styles transition to Fall women styles perfectly. I put together a few ways to style some projects from Dapper to get you excited for cooler weather!

Knit Picks styled shot featuring the Matinee Cardigan

The Matinee Cardigan is the perfect Fall layering piece. The raglan sleeves make it so comfy and the simple refinement of the X and O colorwork balances cozy seed-stitch in rugged tweed for a versatile garment that keeps the casual classy. Balance out the boxier silhouette with skinny jeans and feminine shoes. This outfit is perfect for running weekend errands!

This cardigan is knit flat from the top down, finished with inset pockets and a seed-stitch shawl color. A band of simple two-color stranded colorwork wraps around chest and arms. The boxy shape lends a masculine feel that could easily be softened by adding waist shaping.


knit Picks style shot featuring the Idyllwild Scarf

To add a little bit of warmth, the Idyllwild Scarf is the project for you. This scarf definitely is a statement so pair it with a simple tee and dark wash skinny jeans. To balance out the masculine scarf, pair it with fun wedges!

This comfy scarf is named after the small town of Idyllwild, CA – a forested retreat steps from the Pacific Crest Trail in the San Jacinto Mountains. Idyllwild is a scarf pattern for advanced beginners who have mastered knitting and purling. Working in a simple rib stitch to start, the purl stitches are dropped to create an open fabric with incredible drape. The Idyllwild Scarf is flat from a short end. Purl stitches are dropped in the last row, dropping all stitches back to cast on, drastically altering final gauge and drape.

Dapper has been my favorite pattern collection we have launched since I started working at Knit Picks. All of the projects are so stylish and I love the menswear  style they will add to my wardrobe this Fall.
