Chain of Love
Crochet scarves and wraps can be airy, which makes them perfect for a dainty bit of coverage. Fresh patterns will let you keep your favorite yarns wrapped around you. The Papillon Scarf is a reader favorite, along with the Sweet Pea Shawl. To completely wrap yourself in yarn, crochet a blanket! Curl up into the Blue Squares Afghan or a luscious Irish Lace afghan.

Knit, Pearl, Love

For chillier evenings, knit yourself a few items that will cover more area. A Little Ruffle is a simple pattern and will keep your arms covered from small breezes. The Bamboo Wedding Shawl will do the same but is a fuller wrap. Or work up a blanket like the Dutch Tile Afghan or make a Cotton Chenille Baby Blanket for a wee one.
There are tons of fun knitting patterns floating around. These Bunny Hop Slippers are too cute to handle! And Mary Jane slippers are perfect as gifts. Knit up an Anthropologie Inspired Headband as a quick and easy project. Knit accessories are running amok on AllFreeKnitting.com.
