Thank to Cascade Yarns for supporting the yarn for use in my project. The yarn I was using in this project is Cascade Yarns Friday Harbor.

Friday Harbor is a gorgeously luxuriant wool from Cascade Yarns. It’s made from 80% high-quality merino wool and 20% silk, so it’s beautifully warm but has a tactile silky feel. An aran-weight yarn, it’s perfect for multi-season garments or accessories.

The needle I'm using is Addi Turbo circular knitting needle. This is my go-to needle for most of my knitting project. I would highly recommend this needle even you're a beginner. 

I always want to make a basic knitting pattern set for fall/winter outfit. But I don't to want to go too basic. So I just make a little adjustment for each garment I image.

The first one come into my mind is poncho. Everybody loves poncho for transition weather. I add a kangaroo pocket so that you could put your cell phone or other essential items.

The poncho is worked from top down. Start from the funnel neck. You will need to work a fold over edge optional for draw string. Size available in this pattern is 12/18m, (1/3, 4/6, 7/10, teen) {adult S, adult M, adult L, adult XL}. You can work more rounds at the shoulder shaping part to create a wider poncho. Since it's top down pattern, it's very easy to adjust the length.

The second one is a cardigan. It's worked from top down again. Size available: 12/18m, (1/2, 3/4, 5/6, 7/8, 9/10) {adult XS, adult S, adult M, adult L} adult XL, adult 2XL.

This cardigan is knitted from top down with raglan shaping.  After yoke shaping, work is separated into body and sleeves. Yoke and body are worked flat and sleeves are worked in rounds. A faux seam is worked along the side of the body and bottom of sleeves to allow for structure. 

Don't forget the accessories. Since I already have a poncho with a funnel neck. I don't quite need a scarf or cowl to go with. I decided to make a beret and gloves. 

I offer 3 crown shaping option in the beret, so it's like you will get 3 different patterns. There is also a little trick in this pattern. Can you tell which crown shaping method I used in the model picture? 

The answer is in the pattern. Size fits head circumference from approx. 15" to 23"

For the gloves, I only offer a fingerless option. But it won't be hard for you to work a fingered pair.

Fit hand circumference: 6.5 (7.25, 8, 9) inches /16 (18, 20, 22) cm.
