    Bonne Marie! I love the new sweaters! The basic chic hoodie is so much cuter than a fleece hoodie could ever be (imo), and I love that you included a lace version too. Worsted weight? DK?

    Cassidy is gorgeous. Might make me break out of lace and try some cables. And even FINISH a sweater before the season ends!

    But I can’t think of fall right now, I spent today searching for the perfect dress for my brother’s wedding. And I found it, so pardon the run on mouth, I’ve driven many miles and tried on many dresses, all fueled with double espresso on the go!

  2. Darci says:

    One of each, please….these are fabulous. These will look great in So Cal cotton.

  3. lynette says:

  8. Wannietta says:

    Only a wee bit biased, but Cassidy looks great! I love the beret too – tres chic!!

  9. so excited! Love ALL the new looks!

  10. Nartian says:

    Ooooh, top down! I love them all! I was going to do another Twist or Ribby Pulli, but maybe I’ll do one of your new ones.

  11. Maureen says:

    Beautiful sweaters and very charming shots of Chi-town.

  12. Sonya says:

    Very fabulous! I need to get that pullover, I could see making many. Love the collection!

  13. Karen B. says:

    I adore your new releases – especially the Basic Hoodie and Cassidy’s Cap!

  14. Griffon says:

    LOVE the top-down hoodie! Looking forward to knitting it.

  15. Leslie says:

    So clean. So classic modern. So on brand! Congrats!

  16. Z-List says:

    Woot! Lovely! I see Cassidy and her Cap in my future!

  17. Rita says:

    Love the new collection. Classic and flattering is always my favourite. The link to Lizzie Ann’s Wool Company in Holland, Michigan has an extra forward slash at the end so it doesn’t work as is. I got there fine by omitting it but for the few that might not figure this out I thought I’d let you know. I have no affiliation with the store.

  18. Pamela Berlin says:

    Love your new Fall collection. When will the patterns be available? Internet retailers don’t seem to have them as yet.

  19. Bonne Marie says:

    Thanks so much for all the kind words! I am very excited about these sweaters — have already made myself a pulli and am about half done with the hoodie!

    I’m in the process of updating the links pages as we add retailers — be sure to hit REFRESH when you view to get the latest.

    Pamela — have you tried the Loopy Ewe for an online source?

  20. Michele says:

    Are the new patterns going to be available only by vendor? TY

  21. Oh Poo! Just when I hit the sleeve finish line for the Ribby Cardi, you pull another glorious design out of your felted Bucket Hat!!

    No fair!

    I can’t keep up! Do you think I can make the Classic Hoodie, a Classic collar easily. (Not a big hood fan…I just don’t need any more bulk ….. anywhere.)

  22. Bonne Marie says:

    It would be really easy to just use the hood stitches and make a ribbed collar :)

  23. meg says:

    Wow, all perfectly gorgeous! Loves those cables & especially what you did with the pockets in the ribbing — fantastic!!! I think I seriously need to speak to my LYS about carrying ChicKnits. =>

  24. Kate G. says:

    A Chic Collection! Have you ever done a line release before? How fantastic is that!
    When do you sleep?

  25. Karen says:

    Wow, you have been a busy lady! I love everything!

  26. Jennifer says:

    Beautiful hoodies! Will the patterns be available for direct online purchase?
    I’m in the UK, so no local retailers of ChicKnits patterns!

  27. Laura says:

    Oooo pretty! I can’t wait for them to hit Ravelry so I can add them to the queue!

  28. Wanda says:

    You know I always love your designs. I’ve been behind with blogs lately, but I love these new designs. Just wanted to pop in and say a quick hello. Great job Bonne Marie.

  29. Wanda says:

    I love the Basic Chic Pulli, but I can’t find it in stock anywhere. Could you provide gauge and yarn requirements, so we can plot while we wait? ;-)

  30. Sogalitno says:

    can’t find the new line at any of the internet folks yet. do you have an ETA?
    dying to get them

  31. monica says:

    Love these new designs!! My queue is getting longer and longer.

  32. Melanie says:

    I LOVE your new designs! I just got the two hoodie patterns yesterday from Loopy Ewe and the Basic Hoodie is up next on Knitting To Do List – just as soon as I finish October Frost! Love it! I’ve got some plans for this one!

  33. Delica says:

    These new patterns are so great! I love the basic with option to add lace details concept. Do you think you’ll do men’s designs in the future? I’d love a good-looking, basic male sweater to add to my patterns library.

  34. […] was the most excited about the fall releases were the new patterns from Chicknits. I’m most keen on Cassidy (Ravelry) and Basic Chic Hoodie (Ravelry). Copies of them are on […]
