    My go to piece is a poncho. It works over just about anything, long sleeved, short sleeved, and in just about any fiber. Cotton or linen for warmer days, wool or alpaca for cooler days. Thanks for the great giveaway!

    My favorite to transition seasons is my poncho. Knit of a DK wt yarn. With color! Lots of color! Because that’s what Fall is all about.

    I love my silk lace cardigan for transit action seasons. Light enough to go through the day, and warm enough for a cool evening.

    I have a couple of handknit vests that my mom made for me that are great transitional pieces!

    I am looking for yarn and a poncho pattern for the fall. The perfect transition item to keep the chill off and be comfortable.

    My favorite transitional garment is the Forevermore Poncho. It is elegant, timeless and just the perfect transitional garment.

    My most favorite transitional piece is a Shawl. I live in FL, so don’t really need to worry about big transitions in the seasons!

    I love cardigans and any sweater with a hood. I must have been a bear in a previous life because when it gets cooler I like to hibernate with something comfy and cozy.

    My favorite fall transitional garment is cardigans and ponchos! Great layering pieces to keep of the chill but easy to take off when it warms up, too.

  10. by Cora

    On September 15, 2017 at 8:10 pm

    I love a light Cardigan or poncho as a layering piece especially her in Alberta, Canada. We can have temps that go fro close to 0C to 20C. Weather could be snow, frost, rain and sunshine all in one day!

    I love poncho’s! An easy piece to wear & so comfortable.

  12. by Connie Kline

    On September 15, 2017 at 8:16 pm

    A light cardigan for me. Something I can put on as the day cools, but isn’t bulk to carry or find a spot for.

    I like the poncho as a transitional piece.

    I love to knit vests but this year I decided to knit a few ponchos. One is almost done and I have yarn bought for 2 more. All of them are so different.

  16. by Rebecca Guzman

    My favorite transitional item is an open front cardigan. I can wear it over a tshirt or long sleeve shirt when it’s especially chilly out!

  17. by Brenda LaCroix

    On September 15, 2017 at 10:33 pm

    I really love the Forevermore Poncho, it can be dressed up or dressed down and is absolutely perfect for Phoenix winters! For chilly days you can layer upon layer. Thanks for the chance to win!

    Favorite transitional garment is a cowl first, then as it gets cooler a sweater. Eventually I might have to pull out a jacket with hat and gloves. A poncho using encore would be just about right.

    The Forevermore Poncho. I love the lace work. Patterns that are challenging are a must for me.

  27. by Belia Atkins

    On September 16, 2017 at 2:37 pm

    I love the look of ponchos especially the look of the Forevermore one it is so unique and stylish. I am starting to love cardigans too though they are all so beautiful I would wear them all.

  28. by Kim Brezinsky

    On September 16, 2017 at 2:51 pm

    I love a poncho. it can be worn over a t-shirt for a little extra warmth and even worn over a sweater on those days that are colder but do not yet warrant a winter jacket. Also great if you work in an office where the air conditioning makes it chilly.

  29. by Rebecca

    On September 16, 2017 at 3:25 pm

    I love cardigans!!! They are comfortable and easy to put on and take off as the temperature changes during the day.

    My go to transition piece for Autumn has got to be a poncho it’s just warm enough on a cool day and cool enough on a warm day.

  32. by Lora baker

    Poncho is my transition piece for the Autumn season cuz it’s warm enough on a cool day and cool enough on a warm day

    I love a poncho or hooded sweater!

  34. by Amanda Coehick

    On September 16, 2017 at 4:58 pm

    My favorite transitional item is scarves! I love hooded too but have never made one. Scarves are the perfect way to dress up any outfit and keep warm when there is a chill in te air.

  35. by Jenn

    On September 16, 2017 at 5:01 pm

    My essential (other than a Pumpkin Spice Latte) is a good knitted or crocheted vest. Keeps me warm when I’m out training horses or dogs, but isn’t so hot that I can’t run around with said horses and dogs. Just perfect :)

  36. by Donna St.Amand

    On September 16, 2017 at 5:01 pm

    I love shawls and wraps. very easy on and off when the weather is changing.

    I love my cardigans! They are my favorite year – round when the weather turns cool. I do want to try out a shawl or poncho, but haven’t gotten to making one yet….. So many unfinished projects!

  40. by Rusty M

    On September 16, 2017 at 6:16 pm

    My favorite piece is any one of my shawls. I have filmy, lightweight ones and then heavier weight as it gets cooler. They are so versatile that I even wear them over my work uniforms! Thanks for the chance.

  41. by Robin Beach

    My favorite is a blue and grey cardigan, already worn a couple times this fall.

  44. by Jessica Flater

    On September 16, 2017 at 8:27 pm

    My favourite fall piece is an oversized sweater. Something that can cover my hands and I can snuggle into when I sit on the couch to knit or watch a show.

  45. by Lori Stream

    I love a cozy knitted poncho for these crisp fall days!

  46. by Robin Burton

    On September 17, 2017 at 2:34 am

    A light cardigan is a great transitional garment. You can control the amount of warmth by opening the front yet because it is light full coverage you are still guaranteed warmth. Definitely my favorite!

    I would make the Sirimiri Cardi. I have made several ponchos and enjoy them but the Cardi would be a terrific fall jacket. LOVE IT!

    A very light weight cardigan. Although I’m very fond of ponchos too.

    You can’t beat a lightweight cardigan for fall transition. I am eyeing that beautiful poncho though.

    On September 19, 2017 at 11:50 am

    I love a nice oversized cardigan for transitioning between seasons.
    The longer the better!
    Just throw it on over whatever I’m wearing and keep on going!
    That poncho is tempting though….

  56. by Lee Ann

    On September 20, 2017 at 6:01 am

    Nothing beats a cardigan for the best transitional piece. You have 2 great ones with completely different looks. Love them both.

    My favorite fall transiotional clothing items are sweaters, especially cardigans. My mom is an expert crocheter so I’ll chose the crocheted cardigan.

    San Francisco is either accused of having no seasons, or of racing through all four seasons every day. Whatever the truth is, when Fall comes I get by with a cap, and only occasionally need a scarf. One of the benefits of being a native is wearing shorts while others are pulling out the long underwear and greatcoats. Of course nothing stops me from wearing my handknit sweaters most of the year round.

  66. by Allison

    On September 22, 2017 at 7:31 am

    This made me laugh! My husband and I visited San Francisco years ago and we both bought sweatshirts the day we landed! We were shocked how chilly it was. That was before my knitting day. Now, I always have a shawl or shrug nearby!

  67. by Katie Baker

    On September 23, 2017 at 8:07 pm

    My go-to fall wardrobe pieces are my knitted hats. They were one of the first things I learned how to knit, after making my first scarf using garter stitch. I then started in with loom hats and continued on straight needles for some very dashing rasta beanies that my knitting instructor found the pattern for and thought that I’d love it- which I did! :) It was (for the beanies) the first time I had used two colors for striping and it turned out beautifully ^_^ <3. I made many of these into gifts for freinds and family, too!

    For a good while now, I've been aching to branch out more in my knitwear, though. This poncho looks absolutely divine. I've made a sweater before, but this would be my very first poncho. Would it be possible to gain your assistance in doing so? I'd love dearly to be a winner in this contest. Regardless of the outcome though, I'd like to wish you all a lovely fall. Happy knitting! :)

    I love a vest, but this is so pretty, I’d give a poncho a try!

  69. by Elizabeth Tooley

    On September 29, 2017 at 10:33 am

    Definitely a poncho! The perfect transitional piece and oh so pretty!

  70. by Jeanette mccaul

    I love lace shawls..but I have to say I love the forevermore poncho…would love to knit it for my daughter.

    On September 29, 2017 at 12:38 pm

    My favorite transitional piece is the forever more poncho, perfect for chilly fall days.

    I love a light cardigan with pockets for those cool nights

  73. by DeeAnna Manning

    On September 29, 2017 at 7:28 pm

    My go-to transitional garment is a cardigan or light jacket. From this collection I really like the Forevermore Poncho, the Golden Grove Cardi, and the Moss on a Twig and I’m going to show them to my daughter and see if she lets me make one of them for her. She is extremely picky and fashion conscious, plus she’s expecting (due in March or April). It’s no fun going through the winter cold when none of your jackets will fit over your baby belly. I can’t wait to give that lovely draping Forevermore Poncho a try!

  74. by Darline da Silva

    On September 29, 2017 at 9:43 pm

    My favorite piece is a shawl I use all the time. My friends call me grandma.
    ( Vóvo) in Portuguese. I love ❤️ it!

    A long cardigan! With nice big pockets!
