Ah, aside from the eagerly anticipated pumpkin spice lattes and, well, just about anything pumpkin-infused, there's the foliage, the colors, the leaf piles, and just about everything! What I can unequivocally declare is my preference for styling outfits during Fall. While I absolutely adore the sun-soaked days of summer and the beachy vibes, let's be honest, it's a bit of a challenge to stay effortlessly chic amidst all the heat and humidity.
Autumn, on the other hand, is a game-changer. It's the sweet spot where you can revel in your wardrobe choices without fretting about overheating or feeling uncomfortably cold. It's the Goldilocks season, just right for flaunting your favorite ensembles, as long as they keep you snug and toasty. And what better way to do so than with my absolute favorites—Knitspot sweaters?
So here I go, and let's get started!
The moment it dropped, did you check out our social media? The Box Top Smock is generating quite the buzz! Those pockets, they're simply impeccable. And the sleeve length? Ideal for layering over a crisp button-up with just the right amount peeking out through the neckline. Plus, it adds that extra touch of sophistication to the sleeves, especially if they are puffy!
The Box Top was crafted in two exquisite samples: one in the luxurious Kent Aran (Yes, new yarn alert!) in color Mussell Shell with pockets! And another sample in Targhee Tango Worsted, Argentine, without pockets. Let me tell you, both are absolutely breathtaking.
When Anne unveiled the blocked Targhee Tango worsted version, I was genuinely taken aback. I couldn't believe it was made with Targhee Tango! (Seriously, Anne, joking about yarn?) But truthfully, have you ever experienced Targhee Tango after it's been blocked? It's an absolute delight!

This design is translated in three versatile versions: a cardigan, a pullover, and a skirt! It exudes a timeless and refined elegance, especially the cardigan. It's the kind of design that effortlessly transitions from the office to couch surfing to Saturday afternoon fun.
I like to envision the combined pieces as a knitted suit – a polished ensemble that pairs seamlessly with your professional attire. Throw it on as your next work outfit and you're good to go!
The sweater perfect for creating a snug and stylish fall look. Picture it with wide-legged pants, some chic boots, and top it off with a stylish hat!
When crafted with Stone Soup Worsted, it brings a rustic charm that's further elevated with the addition of antler buttons, creating a truly striking ensemble!
Ondulé is far from your average knit. Its silhouette is tapered to accentuate the waist, featuring a graceful hourglass shape that widens from the waist into a chic peplum. Picture it paired with a long-sleeved dress – the result is nothing short of stunning! Ondulé was originally released in 2009, and we recently featured it in Finn Dandy 2-ply yarn, color Haze. Allow me to share a valuable insight I've gained during my time at Bare Naked Wools: the choice of yarn can entirely transform the look of any design, so choose with discernment.
It's not just a pullover; it's a mock turtleneck with striking stitch details. The Interlaken Pullover is the epitome of style and comfort, especially when crafted with Finn Dandy 3-ply Sport yarn in the Lynx color. And there's more—this design also offers matching motifs for a skirt and a cap to complete the perfect ensemble!
