About Me

Hello thanks for dropping by!

If this is your first time on my site then welcome; my name's Nicole and I am a knitwear designer based in the Shetland Islands with a love for hand knitting!  

Here is a quick run through of my knitting journey:

I learned to knit when I was only seven years old and I haven't been able to put my needles down since! 

Living in Shetland, I grew up surrounded by Fair Isle and lace knitting, and have been lucky enough to work alongside traditional and modern textile designers; each inspiring me in different ways.

After designing a hat to enter into a local county show in 2017, I fell in love with design!

I began designing Fair Isle hats, and then I started to look into lace scarves and one thing led to another.

Today I design traditional knitwear with a modern twist...

I am currently running Nicole Estelle Designs from a little self-made studio space in my house where all of my ideas come to life. Everything I make is hand knitted with love and care and designed to put a smile on your face.

This website has my online shop and my blog page where I will keep you updated on new knitting designs I come up with and my life living in Shetland.
