Haha! It sort of sounds like “Estelle pulverized”! That’s not at all what I mean, though, so don’t worry! : )
As soon as I published the Estelle cardigan, I realized that she would also make a lovely pullover – and had to start knitting immediately! So, in case there were any like minded knitters out there, I wrote up the pattern for the pullover, combined it with the cardigan pattern and am now offering them both as a set. Anyone who purchased the original Estelle cardigan pattern will receive an update including the pullover and anyone who wants to purchase the pullover pattern will get the cardigan pattern to boot! Whew! I just said “cardigan” and “pullover” about 138492395 times, so I’ll stop. Here are some lovely pictures of the . . . um . . . ok, the thesaurus is telling me I can also call it a slipover . . .
This version of Estelle is worked in Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Worsted Solid (mine is in Pine, a color that I am in love with). I’m currently obsessed with this yarn and may use it for every single project in the future. The gauge is still 17 sts and 24 rows per 4 inches in Stockinette stitch. Lorna’s Laces is a bit plumper than the Araucania called for in the original pattern, and gives a nice thick and soft fabric.
The pattern offers sizes XS, S, M, L, 1X, 2X, and 3X – which corresponds to final sweater bust measurements of 32, 36, 40, 44, 48, 52, and 56 inches. The lace pattern is charted and written out, so take your pick!
Both patterns are available as a set for 6.50 (USD) as a download in my Ravlery Store or through Paypal. Just click below!
