Warm days and cool nights are a subtle reminder that Fall is on its way, which means it’s time to get started on our Fall and Winter knitting. We’ve been busy here at Estelle, working on new patterns for those cool days to come. All of our latest Estelle patterns are available for free on the Estelle Free Patterns page, and they are also now all available for free on Ravelry. For those of you who still prefer to have a paper pattern, they can be purchased at your LYS for a small fee- just ask your local yarn shop owner for more details!
For beginners who are ready to advance their skills, why not try the Rea Vest? It is knit in the round from the bottom up and uses a series of short rows to create a high low hem. Using Estelle Chunky Solids, there are 44 colors to choose from, or Estelle Chunky Heathers which has 12 gorgeous shades to tempt you.
Looking for more of a challenge but still want to create something fun and functional? How about Shannon Charles’ new pattern for Fingerless Pocket Mitts? Knit in Estelle Alpaca Merino Fine, this pattern incorporates a handy little pocket on the top that’s just perfect for bus fare, subway tokens, or any small item to keep your hands free. Best of all, the Alpaca Merino Fine comes in 22 beautiful heathered tones, and one ball is all you need to make yourself (or your best buddy!) a pair of these mitts.
And if you have found yourself looking for a Netflix and knit project, Robbie Laughlin’s new Confetti Cowl is perfect! A simple pattern that lets the yarn do the talking. Estelle Lumiere is a blend of wool and acrylic and is available in 6 luminescent variegated combinations. Super soft to the touch, along with incredible stitch definition, this is a “must have” accessory for this winter.
We love to see your finished projects using our yarns, and we always love your feedback, so never hesitate to be in touch!
All of our latest free patterns are available on our website, or as free Ravelry downloads. Can’t find a pattern that you have been looking for? Drop us a line! And we will do our best to get it to you.
Happy knitting everyone!
