Sometimes inspiration comes from necessity, that is how the Estella Series came to be.
Estella is my mother in law, and she recently celebrated her 70th birthday during the covid-19 pandemic lockdown.
Initially, I designed Estella, but failed to write down the actual pattern and so had to recreate it. During this time, the Estelle Wrap and Stella Shawl also came to be.
Estella, the original design but the last pattern released is the most true to the original design of the trio. Shown here in black white and grey ombre, its the perfect addition to that little black dress! A simple side to side triangle shawl, featuring two types of puff stitch, this pattern is perfect for beginners and is just challenging enough to keep the more experienced crocheter on their toes.
The Stella Shawl is probably my favourite of all three patterns. Blues and greens are my favourite colours and this shawl just makes me happy every time I look at it. An easy triangle shawl, Stella is also worked from side to side, but features a different take on the repeating pattern and uses only one of the puff stitches featured in the Estella Series. Check out the post to see the gorgeous sunset brown ombre version created using the Baltic Amber Twirls Deluxe.
The Estelle Wrap was the first in the series to be released. Lightweight and easily extendable, this wrap is versatile and falls easily off your hook. This long lacy rectangular wrap version of the Estella Series is surprisingly the most popular. Made using a single puff, this wrap will keep you on your toes as although the repeating rows look the same, they are not! This design was the first to be released of the series.
