Oversized Knits are this Year’s Fashion Hit

Just ask anyone who loves to knit, nothing makes us happier than when Winter fashion trends point toward knitwear. Are you kidding — the opportunity to create our very own super hip knits that we see in all the shop windows, but in the colours and fibres we choose? It just doesn’t get any better than that! You can just imagine how excited we are, and how excited we think you’ll be, with this year’s new trend in big (and we mean big!) oversized knits and dramatic bursts of colour.

The fashion forward design team at Lang Yarns knew well ahead of time that comfort wear was going to be big for 2019 and their new brain child, Wool Addicts, is all about cozy, comfortable and uber trendy.

If you’ve been to a shopping mall lately or leafed though any fashion magazine, you will have noticed that bulky colourblock cardis, boyfriend sweaters, blanket scarves and big, bold stripes are everywhere you look.

Enter Wool Addicts. Basic designs, bold colour lines, oversized statement pieces and sophisticated natural fibres are what Wool Addicts is all about. These simple designs allow the fibre and colour to take centre stage in these show stopping garments.

Wool Addicts Book #1 features forty-three stunning patterns for their exquisite collection of natural yarns. Earth – a super-soft blend of alpaca and merino. Fire – super chunky and extra-fine merino at its best. Air – lofty, cloudy soft spun merino. Love – a lightweight, chainette merino that will melt your heart. Water – a soft, ethereal alpaca that is sure to keep you warm on a cold winter night.

We can always count on Lang when it comes to being one step ahead in the fashion world. If you’re looking for comfort and quality, stop by your LYS and check out their selection of Wool Addicts yarns and patterns, and remember, they don’t call it Wool Addicts for nothing!

Estelle Alpaca Merino Bulky

If you were you to do a search on oversized sweaters on Ravelry, Pinterest or Etsy today, you might be amazed at the results. With popular indie designers like Joji Locatelli and Isabell Kraemer offering top selling designs for bulky sweaters and accessories with bold colour lines, we would be remiss if we didn’t mention two of our top sellers that we feel are the perfect fit for all your bulky needs.

Estelle Alpaca Merino Bulky is oh-so soft, knits like a dream, and is composed of 60% superfine alpaca, and 40% merino wool. Your mind will be blown! Alpaca Merino Bulky has great twist, beautiful colour selection, and would be ideal for any and all oversized knits.

Available in fifteen sensational colourways, each 200-gram ball packs an astounding 150 meters per ball! And with a gauge of 10 to 12 stitches on 8mm – 10mm needles, the yardage goes a long, long way. We think Estelle Alpaca Merino Bulky is an all-around winner!

Estelle Bulky

Thick, warm and economical, Estelle Bulky is great for making cozy scarfs, comfy cardis, and any project where you desire that plush and sumptuous look. A washable blend of 40% Wool, 50% Acrylic, 10% Nylon, Estelle Bulky is perfect for those who don’t have time to hand wash.

Estelle Bulky has a colourful palette of twenty solid and heathered shades for you to choose from. The question is, how do you choose just one? Bright and bold, or subtle and subdued, there’s sure to be something to please everyone.

Cascade Mondo

It happens every year, even though every year we tell ourselves we won’t let it happen again…it’s three days before Christmas and you decide that you need to crank out just one more gift to tuck under the tree. You arrive at your LYS armed with a fierce determination and the biggest knitting needles or crochet hook you have in your stash, and you set out to find the perfect yarn that will make the perfect present…FAST!

The last-minute knitter or crocheter is not unfamiliar to the staff at your LYS, and they know better than anyone that if you need to make something fast Cascade Mondo is the only way to go.

Who says size doesn’t matter? When it comes to Cascade Mondo, size is ALL that matters! Big knits are always a huge hit and Cascade Mondo is just the ticket for fast, fashionable and fun knitting and crocheting. It really doesn’t get any better, or bigger, than this!

With a knitted gauge of 1 stitch per inch on 25 mm needles, this jumbo yarn is exactly what you want for your last minute projects. Cascade Mondo is the number one choice for arm knitting, one ball yields a generous scarf in no time at all. Super bulky blankets are all the rage right now and three balls of Mondo, some great big needles or a big hook and a weekend are that’s needed to create these bold statement pieces. And what about those garter stitch ottoman covers we see on all the design shows? That’s right, just a few balls of Mondo and presto – a striking accent piece that will stand out in any room.

Available in six rich and warm colourways, Mondo has something to please everyone on your list. These 400-gram balls have 53 meters of wonderful wooliness in every ball, which goes a long way with big needles!

Mondo is a luxuriously soft blend of 50% superfine alpaca and 50% wool, the perfect combination for warmth, breathability and drape. Three loosely spun singles are plied together to make Mondo, giving it incredible stitch definition, a tendency to pill less than single ply yarns, and the rope-like twist makes for beautifully balanced, even stitches.

If you are on a deadline, or maybe you just love instant gratification projects, Cascade Mondo is the yarn for you! You’ll feel like a rock star when you see how quickly you can whip up a luxury gift for a fraction of what you would pay in a department store. And who knows, you might even have enough time left over to make a little something for yourself as well!

Happy knitting and crocheting everyone!

 

 

Knit the Knitterati Squares with Marsha and Trish – Block #13

Block #13 in the Cascade Knitterati KAL was released a few days early this week and Team Estelle volunteer knitter Trish, was over the moon as soon as she saw it. Having recently discovered the beauty of Japanese stitches, this gentle introduction was a welcome treat.

Much to the delight of many of the participating knitters, Block #12 was hands down the fastest block to date and used the least amount of yarn. The rhythmic lace repeat was intuitive and addictive, and with just forty rows of pattern, it knit up in record time.

We used Cascade 220 Superwash Merino colour 69, Golden Palm, for block #12 and the rich and deep colour saturation was perfectly fitting to showcase the delicate lace work. The yarn didn’t split at all when working the decreases and every stitch glided off the needles with ease.

Block #13 was designed by Mari Tobita whose work has been featured in a number of different knitting magazines and on Ravelry. If you’ve never heard of Mari before, chances are you will never forget her after completing this square.

Twisted stitches form wandering vines from which tiny, exquisite flowers emerge. Wrapped stitch clusters add depth and dimension and create an eye-catching design. This pattern is thoughtful and engaging and with twisted stitches on every row, you will be a master of ptbl by the time you’re finished.

It’s hard to believe that once we’re done Block #13 we only have three more blocks to do! We’ve learned so much along the way, we’re almost sad to see it come to an end. Although, we’re pretty sure that sadness will melt away quickly as soon as we wrap up in our new lapghan!

It’s never too late to get in on the Knitterati action should you find yourself so inclined. There’s nothing saying you absolutely have to do it in a certain time frame nor that you have to do each and every block. Work at your pace and choose the blocks that interest you the most. To register to receive the patterns via email every three weeks, simply click here and then let the fun begin!

MORE Estelle Free Patterns!

Last week we added four fabulous new patterns for Estelle Alpaca Merino DK to our ever expanding Free Pattern selection and not a moment too soon! With the cold winter mornings upon us, there really is nothing better to bundle up in than a cozy shawl. We just know that as soon as you see our newest shawls and stole patterns, you’ll be digging out your needles and planning your next trip to your LYS.

First, let us tell you a little bit about Alpaca Merino DK, one of the star members of the Estelle Yarns family. Alpaca Merino Worsted, Bulky, Chunky and Fingering have all been enjoying the limelight on the Estelle Yarns stage for some time now, so a DK weight was the perfect addition to round out the lineup.

Like its siblings, Estelle Alpaca Merino DK is oh-so soft and knits like a dream! The sublime blend of 60% superfine alpaca and 40% merino wool is perfectly heavenly. Available in twenty-three richly heathered shades, we feel this yarn should come with a warning – Alpaca Merino DK may be addictive!

To every Canadian knitter’s delight, the one fashion accessory we will always need is a shawl. Wear it over or under your coat, around your shoulders or around your neck, heck we’ve even seen them tied around the waist over a bikini in the summer! Shawls are not only practical and fun to make, they’re the perfect gift to give as well. Treat yourself to an enjoyable, meditative knitting experience with one of our new shawls or stole patterns, and then wrap yourself up in the fruits of your labour.

 

Colour Banded Shawl is a simple slip-stitch pattern that makes for a fast and fun knit. Knit with three shades of Estelle Alpaca Merino DK, the colour possibilities are endless! For a more subtle effect, use a single solid colour throughout to create a timeless accessory that will go with everything.

 

 

Correct Shawl is a three-colour shawl in simple garter stitch with an attractive centre double decrease spine and a short row accent stripe that ticks all the boxes for a fun and relaxing knit! This asymmetrical shawl is an excellent addition to any wardrobe.

 

 

Harbour Shawl is a charming striped shawl that is knit in one direction, then picked up and knit in the opposite direction. Wear it over a coat for added warmth, or pair it with your favourite top to jazz up your outfit.

 

 

 

Tri-Coloured Stole definitely looks harder than it is, and that’s one thing every knitter loves to hear! This deceptively simple stole is worked lengthwise using only basic stitches. This quick knit is a timeless piece that will never go out of fashion.

 

 

Don’t forget that all our patterns for Estelle Alpaca Merino DK can also be worked in Estelle DK, meaning you have unlimited options for colour, fibre content and washability.

All of our patterns are available to download for free here. We hope you’ll enjoy them!

Happy knitting and crocheting everyone!

 

Estelle Rainbow Autumn and Free Patterns

Rainbow Autumn

Back in June we told you all about Rainbow Autumn, the newest member of the Estelle Yarns gradient family, that would be launched in the Fall. Fast forward a few short months and we can say without a doubt that Rainbow Autumn has become one of the hottest yarns on the market.

A decadent blend of 50% cotton and 50% wool, Rainbow Autumn is the perfect yarn for the transition from Fall to Winter when it’s not so cold that you need a big wool scarf, yet still cool enough to need a little something to chase the chill. This rich combination of fibres enhances drape and provides for excellent stitch definition. It really is no wonder Rainbow Autumn has been so well received.

Available in 200-gram balls, Rainbow Autumn is perfect for one ball projects. Whether it be the free shawl pattern on the label or one from your own pattern library, this 680-meter ball is typically more than enough for a generous shawl.

We have had loads of requests to make the shawl pattern that comes on the Rainbow Autumn ball band available online and we can happily say that you asked and we listened! The Rainbow Autumn Triangle Shawl is now available as a free download on our website. Not only is it much larger print and easier to read, there’s lots of room in the margins should you wish to make any annotations.

Rainbow Autumn is a slow colour gradient which means there are no colour repeats, no colour pooling, and less ends to weave in! What knitter or crocheter doesn’t love that?! With six playfully eye-popping shades to choose from, Rainbow Autumn will make anyone forget about Old Man Winter.

Knit the Knitterati Squares with Marsha and Trish – Block #12

Move over Block #11, there’s a new square in town! According to our volunteer knitter Trish, the newest pattern in the Cascade Knitterati Knit Along is a fun and addictive knit! So fun in fact, she got a little carried away and knit two thirds of the pattern in one sitting! Judging from the response on Ravelry, Block #12 is a big hit with you as well, with some stellar knitters having already finished it.

Block #11 was an easy and intuitive knit. The simple and rhythmic repeat of seed stitch and stocking stitch was broken up only every twelfth row with a basic eight stitch cable. Little effort for massive impact is something every knitter can get on board with!

We have really learned the importance of gauge throughout this Knit Along. The ultimate goal is to have twelve-inch squares, and because so many things can affect our gauge, it is always worth the time and effort to do a gauge swatch. It takes a lot longer to knit an entire block over again than it does to swatch through a few rows, and nothing would be worse than trying to assemble your lapghan with different sized blocks!

Block #12 starts off with a circular cast-on using a crochet hook, something Trish had never done before but was eager to learn. With the help of the handy video tutorial and after a few attempts it was off to the races!

Block #12 is worked circularly from the inside out. It starts small with only eight stitches, offering knitters the opportunity to work on double pointed needles or use the Magic Loop technique until there are enough stitches to work comfortably on a 24″ circular needle. According to Trish, “the increases on every other row meant the square grew quickly and before I knew it I was on Row 29 of this forty-row pattern!”

We are into our twelfth ball of Cascade 220 Superwash Merino and we can honestly say that we haven’t had a single knot or imperfection yet, pretty impressive we think! After all, when you use quality yarn, you can expect a quality experience.

If you would like to jump in on the fun, it’s not too late to register! Simply visit the Cascade website here and sign up to receive the patterns every three weeks via email. Knit at your own pace or challenge yourself to catch up, it’s up to you. Visit your LYS to pick up a kit or select your own colours to suit your taste. Whatever you decide, we are confident that you will love Cascade 220 Superwash Merino and the Cascade Knitterati Knit Along as much as we do!

Happy knitting and crocheting everyone!

Knitted Knockers of Canada

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we think there is no better time to remind you about an organization we are proud to sponsor, Knitted Knockers of Canada. It is likely that we all have a mother, sister, aunt, friend or other loved one who has been affected by breast cancer which is why we know that this cause is just as important to you as it is to all of us at Estelle Yarns.

Knitted knockers are special handmade breast prostheses that are available for free to women who have undergone mastectomies or other procedures to the breast. Traditional prostheses are expensive, uncomfortable and heavy, and often can’t be worn for weeks after surgery. Made with Cascade Ultra Pima, knitted knockers are soft and gentle on the skin, sculpt easily and truly take on the look and feel of a real breast.

Estelle Yarns has worked with Knitted Knockers of Canada since its inception in March, 2015. In 2017, over five thousand pairs of knockers were sent out to each and every province in Canada, and it looks like there will be even more than that sent out this year.

We asked Nancy at Knitted Knockers of Canada if she felt that teaming up with Estelle has been beneficial and here’s what she had to say, “Estelle has helped us in so many ways…….spreading the word to local yarn stores, providing patterns pads with the crochet and knitted patterns right across the country to local yarn shops. You guys have also picked up completed knitted knockers from local yarn stores and sent them to us, and you have provided skeins of Cascade Ultra Pima that we use as prizes at different events……..so I would say that we are definitely a TEAM……we could not do what we do without you guys!”

And Estelle couldn’t do it without you and local yarn shops! We can’t thank you enough for helping spread the word. Featuring the free patterns in yarn shops for customers to see helps bring awareness. When your LYS accepts completed knockers dropped off by you and other customers and forwards them on, this provides donations. It’s because of this amazing team work that Knitted Knockers of Canada has been able to provide so many knockers from coast to coast. Feel proud Knitters and Crocheters, you are making a difference!

Knitted Knockers of Canada suggest using Cascade Ultra Pima, but any soft cotton or baby weight yarn can also be used provided it is washable and contains no wool. Remember, these are going to be up against delicate skin so the key word is SOFT! While all efforts are very much appreciated, coarse acrylics and crafting cottons should be avoided as they are just a bit too rough on sensitive skin.

 

Knitted Knockers of Canada is not exclusive to knitting, there are also patterns for crocheted knockers. Because crochet produces a stiffer fabric, these are used as Aqua knockers for swimming. A soft acrylic yarn like Cascade North Shore is recommended as it dries quickly and is machine washable.

We would like to encourage you to continue your support of Knitted Knockers of Canada by hosting a Knitted Knocker Night this month. Whether you organize something with your knitting group, attend an event at your LYS, or just hang out with some pals at a coffee shop and work on knockers, every little effort counts. There are free knit and crochet patterns available on our website, as well as video tutorials on the Knitted Knockers of Canada website. Be sure to take pictures and send them to us, or tag Estelle Yarns in your social media posts. The more we share the more we spread the word about this fabulous organization.

This weekend, dig your out needles and hooks, dear Knitters and Crocheters.
Let’s show the country that with our sticks and strings we will make a difference!

“I can do things you cannot, you can do things I cannot; together we can do great things.” — Mother Teresa

Brittany Needles and Hooks

It’s no secret that knitters and crocheters are looking for ethically produced products as we are all becoming more and more conscious of our carbon footprint. Brittany prides itself in being an ecologically-minded company that strives to minimize its environmental impact at every stage of production.

As fibre artists look to source their supplies as close to home as possible, we can happily say that Brittany Needles and Hooks are made in California from sustainably harvested birch and walnut trees. The warmth and smoothness of hardwood nurtures sensitive fingers and provides natural strength and consistency for a lasting product. The tensile strength and stability of birch means it maintains size, resists warping and allows for an extremely smooth surface. Birch is lightweight so the needles won’t fall out of your knitting yet Brittany‘s exclusive finish provides for one of the slickest needles on the market.

Brittany Birch Single Point Needles are available in 10″ and 14″ lengths, from 3.25mm (US3) to 20mm (US20). The beautifully rounded tips ensure your yarn won’t split and the sleek finish allows your stitches to slide easily. These warm and lightweight needles also reduce hand and wrist strain associated with large needles, making bulky knitting a breeze.

Brittany Birch Double Pointed Needles come in sets of five, perfect for knitters who prefer to use five needles when knitting in the round and come in three lengths, 5”, 7.5” and 10”. With sizes ranging from 2.00mm (US0) to 12mm (US17), there is nothing you can’t knit with these. From fine socks to chunky sweaters, the possibilities are endless!

Brittany Black Walnut 10″ Single Point needles are hand crafted in small batches with extreme care which means they are the finest needle available. Featuring an heirloom quality all natural finish, these smooth and exquisite needles are a must have for any serious knitter.

Brittany Crochet Hooks are meticulously cut and polished by hand and feature a lovely Victorian turned end. Brittany Crochet Hook sizes range from D to M and include the size 7 step between G and H. This size is often useful for accurate gauge.

Brittany Cable Needles have a unique design that knitters truly love. They come in a set of three different diameters and have a matte finish. We’ve all had that moment when you’re halfway through knitting a cable and your cable needle falls to the ground. With Brittany Cable Needles your stitches remain safely in place allowing you to knit cables with confidence.

Brittany Shawl Pins have the same matte finish as their cable needles, have a 5mm diameter and are six inches long. The perfect closure for shawls and sweaters, these also make a perfect gift for the knitter on your list, or as an add on to a knitted gift for a special someone.

Brittany Needle Wax is the best choice for cleaning and maintaining the finish of all your fine wooden tools. It contains high quality natural waxes and just a drop of organic vanilla oil. Take the very best care of your tools with this all-natural needle wax.

One thing you will notice about Brittany Needles and Hooks is that you will never see them in any chain or big box store. A small business themselves, the folks at Brittany understand the importance of supporting small businesses and only sell to LYS. They know the best customer service comes from small, local yarn shops and that their needles will be best represented there.

Be sure to ask about Brittany Needles on your next trip to your LYS. You will want to add a set in every size to your wish list this year!

Happy knitting and crocheting everyone!

Knit the Knitterati Squares with Marsha and Trish

With ten blocks down and six to go we feel like we are cruising quickly toward the end of the Cascade Knitterati KAL and our feelings are mixed at this point. We’re happy to soon wrap up in the fruits of our labour, but sad at the same time that we are coming to an end to this fun and educational knit along. We can honestly say that we have learned a lot of new techniques as well as some helpful tricks of the trade.

Marsha tells us that Block #10 was one of her favourite squares to knit so far. “A quick and fun knit, none of the stitches were difficult but together they give the impression that this might be a more complicated knit”. Considering Marsha has done all of the tricky blocks so far, we can totally understand why she enjoyed this one so much!This week we are featuring Marsha’s photo of her square during the blocking process in an effort to emphasize the importance of blocking your knitting. Blocking is a crucial final step when completing a project, it opens up your knitting and allows your yarn to bloom. If you are taking the time to make something by hand, take the time to block, it’s always worth the extra effort.

Block #11 was released this week and Team Estelle member Trish volunteered to do the honours. A self proclaimed cable lover, Trish was more than happy to get started on this block.

Talented knitting instructor and designer Amy Herzog cleverly designed Block #11. Amy’s sweater designs have been featured in Twist Collective, Knitscene, Interweave Knits, Knitty, and more. This simple combination of seed stitch and cables make for an impressive block that will stand out nicely among the others once assembled.

Having completed her current wip’s and with nothing on the needles, Trish was keen to get Block #11 started as soon as it was released. Not a fan of using a cable needle, Trish was pleased to find that even with an eight stitch cable, Cascade 220 Superwash Merino didn’t split when working the cables without a cable needle.

It’s never too late to join in on the fun! Even though we are eleven blocks in, if you follow the Ravelry thread for the Cascade Knitterati KAL you will see that knitters are still signing up to participate. All you need to do is enter your email address here to register to receive the pattern installments every three weeks. There are no rules, you can knit at your own pace and enjoy learning new techniques while you create this show-stopping lapghan.

We love seeing all the photos of your wip’s and finished blocks so please keep sending them to cascadegradientlapghan@estelledesigns.ca.

Happy knitting and crocheting everyone!

 

King Cole Yarns Vlog

Many of you remember the days when the only way you got to see new yarns was on the pages of your favourite knitting magazine or when new stock came in at your LYS. Now that new products can be viewed quickly and conveniently online, King Cole is taking a different approach to the launch of their new lines.

Vlogs, or video blogs, are King Cole’s brilliant new way to show you in great detail, their new and upcoming yarns and patterns in a series of fun and informative YouTube videos.

Join charming hosts, Susan and Joanne, as they walk you through every little detail of the featured yarn. They describe each colourway with great precision, something we find really helpful considering computer monitors don’t always give us a true representation of colour. If you’re unsure about a certain colourway, these vlogs are the best way to find out. On top of that, they give all the products specs, fibre content and care instructions.

Have a look at this great video for Comfort Cheeky Chunky, a new yarn from King Cole this Fall. After Joanne gives the colour rundown, they take turns showing off the corresponding patterns, again in great detail. Pattern numbers are clearly indicated and there are samples for almost every pattern they feature.

 

It can be difficult to visualize what printed yarns like Comfort Cheeky Chunky will look like once they are knit up. These vlogs are an excellent tool that will allow you to view a finished product immediately. Say goodbye to guessing how a patterned yarn will look, now you can know for sure before you even leave your LYS.

Also new from King Cole, Twirly Tweed Chunky is a self-striping tweed that makes for fast projects that will appeal to everyone. The variety of samples that are shown in the vlog really show off the slow shift of colours and demonstrate Twirly Tweed Chunky‘s versatility. See what Joanne and Susan have to say about Twirly Tweed Chunky here.

 

Another great benefit of the vlog is being able to view all the other patterns included in each leaflet. For example, Pattern 5242 has four other crochet designs on the back of the leaflet, and Pattern 5241 has another three. Joanne and Susan offer useful tips on working with Twirly Tweed Chunky and answer all the questions you might have about colour matching.

In addition to product information videos, King Cole also offers video tutorials for some of the yarns that differ slightly from the norm. A perfect example is Tufty, a fur like yarn that is perfect for toys and stuffies. It can be hard to know how to get started with Tufty so being able to watch a quick, handy how-to video might just be the boost of confidence you need to try out a new yarn. Watch the quick video for Tufty here.

King Cole is always one step ahead when it comes to innovative ways to assist you in choosing the yarn and pattern for your next project. Why not make yourself a nice hot cuppa and join Susan and Joanne to find your next inspiration? We know you will be delighted by Susan’s infectious laugh and inspired by Joanne’s wealth of knowledge. Who knows, it may even motivate you to knit a jumper of your very own!

To view all of the King Cole videos, have a look at their YouTube channel here.
