I Love Starlette

Today we are celebrating one of our favorite yarns Mary Maxim Starlette.  Starlette is a premium acrylic yarn that is a dream to design with.  Each ball of Starlette has 180 yards of soft worsted weight yarn and comes in 44 different colors.


We designed our recent Ragg D’ Anne cowl and beanie with Starlette yarn featured on the September Blog Exclusive.

Starlette has been a cornerstone of our yarn line for over 50 years.  We are so excited to bring you these limited time only free downloads.  These patterns are available only until Monday, October 22nd, after you will only be able to purchase them in Mary Maxim’s pattern library.  There are over 4,000 patterns in the Mary Maxim pattern library to choose from, there are so many wonderful designs in our extensive pattern archive.
