The World’s Gonna Know Your Name – Hurry!

The World’s Gonna Know Your Name Has Been Released!

The World’s Gonna Know Your Name is my latest knitting pattern and I released it last week! If you are a subscriber to my newsletter you will have received a code to get it for FREE! But hurry! The code expires tomorrow!

As I usually do I have also discounted the pattern for the first week as an introductory offer, this also finishes tomorrow! If you haven’t subscribed to my newsletter then you have missed out on this offer. But don’t worry! When you sign up you get a code for 50% off one of my patterns, and there will be other free ones for subscribers in the future so now is a great time to make sure you don’t miss out again!

The World’s Gonna Know Your Name – Why?

Where does the name for this pattern come from, I hear you ask! Well I am a huge fan of musicals. Two of my absolute favourites are Jesus Christ Superstar and Hamilton. The name for this pattern comes from Hamilton. In fact it comes from the opening song – Alexander Hamilton. I was listening to it a lot when I was working on this initially. Then when I revisited it to do all the editing I was able to watch it on Disney+.

The World’s Gonna Know Your Name – What?

So I guess you want me to tell you a bit more about the pattern? It is a headband knitted in DK weight yarn. It includes instructions for a provisional cast on and to graft at the end if you want. But you could also use your favourite cast on and cast off methods and seam it to finish. I know a lot of people aren’t fans of grafting stitches.

It is a great pattern for using up the odds and ends of balls of yarn when you have finished other projects. The biggest size should only use a maximum of 30g. And you could get really inventive and use up lots of different colours by using stripes or blocks of colour.

The most noticeable thing about The World’s Gonna Know Your Name is the twist at the front. It gives the finished item the appearance of a turban style headband. It is really effective and eye catching, but you will be surprised how much fun it is to do. The pattern includes a photo tutorial to help for the first time, but soon you will be making lots of versions of this in all the colours for everyone you can think of.

The World’s Gonna Know Your Name – an original?

The are a few things you can do to make the finished headband unique. One of my testers added a cute little button to the front. You could also add something sparkly, or change the look with some colour work. You can check out some of the tester’s project pages on Ravelry.

Do you like to have a project that you can just pick up and put down when you have only a few minutes to work on it without worrying about losing your place? Maybe you need something to keep in the car for when you are running errands? I know I have been keeping a project in there at the moment because whilst we are being encouraged to shop alone I will stay in the car whilst my husband or son runs in to quickly grab a few things. And of course, its always nice to have a project that you don’t need to concentrate on too much when you are enjoying a movie or series in the evening.

The World’s Gonna Know Your Name – Where?

You can grab your copy in a few places. Here on my website as well as on Love Crafts. If you are a subscribe to my newsletter I sent out a code which you will be able to redeem on either Ravelry or Payhip. For everyone else it is discounted on these two sites by 15% for one week. So you will need to be quick!

Quick as a Flash – Birthday Sale!

Quick as a Flash – Birthday Sale!

I Am Having a Flash Birthday Sale!

Today I am having a birthday sale. I wanted to share my day with you and have you join in the celebrations with me. Usually I would be able to visit my family and friends on my birthday. Or I would meet them somewhere for a coffee. I would be able to go out to my favourite restaurant for dinner.

Birthday Sale
Everglade Beanie

This year is different. With the national lockdown restrictions all the restaurants are closed. We can’t go to the shops to buy gifts or sit in a cafe and enjoy a coffee with friends. But I can share my day with you in the form of a flash birthday sale. For just 24 hours all my patterns in my Ravelry store and my Payhip store will be reduced by 25%. But you will need to hurry to grab your discount – it all ends at 23:59 on 7th January 2021.

How To Join In My Birthday Sale

In my Ravelry store my birthday sale discount will be applied to your basket without the need for a coupon. Just add the patterns you want to your cart and check out. As simple as that.

In my Payhip store you will need to use the coupon code Birthday to get your 25% off all my patterns.

Which Patterns Will You Choose?

The weather has taken a decidedly wintry turn in recent weeks. But that is ok, as it is the perfect weather for sitting cosy in front of the fire and tv and picking up a knitting project. And with the national restrictions related to covid-19 we are all enjoying staying safe at home more than we may have done this time last year.

Do you enjoy knitting stocking stitch in the round so that you can concentrate on a TV show? If so then you may enjoy the cowl Meet Me Inside, my latest pattern. It is a cowl knitted in once piece in the round and you can make it as long or as short as you want.

Or do you want a garment pattern? Vera and Stanhope are both v-neck raglans which are knitted top-down. You begin flat, but once the neck shaping is completed the body and arms are all knitted in the round.

If you prefer your garments knitted flat then how about Arundale? This vest was designed for my Dad but one of my testers made it for herself and loves it with a pair of jeans. She didn’t want to knit in the round as she likes long, straight needles that she can tuck under her arms as she knits.

Are you knitting for a baby? I have a few patterns for the little ones in mind which I designed for my grandson and my granddaughter. How about Sandy Point? I used a fair isle effect yarn to make mine, but you could use a solid or variegated and it would look brilliant.

Or for a little girl you can’t go wrong with a pair of frilly knickers! I recently took part in the Indie Designer’s Gift-A-Long where my Knickers pattern was the talk of the town. One of the other designers was even a little sad that the pattern wasn’t graded big enough to make herself a pair!

Don’t Forget To Share My Birthday Sale!

No matter which of my patterns takes your fancy don’t forget to share, share, share! Tell your friends about the sale, tell me which design has caught your eye, and of course please share photos of your WIPs!

I love to see what you are making. Tag me on social media using @allneedles or #allneedles #emmasadler #emmasadlerdesigns

I will be releasing some new patterns soon so don’t forget to make sure you are signed up to my newsletter to be the first to know and receive exclusive coupon codes!

Did You Miss My Trendy New Trollies?

Did You Miss My Trendy New Trollies?

Last week I released my latest pattern – Trollies. It is a cute little pair of shorts for babies up to 12 months old and I just wanted to make sure you didn’t miss the release and don’t miss out on the time limited discount. I know I usually release my new patterns on the last Tuesday of the month, but the end of November is looking pretty full for me. My husband is hoping to come home for the first time this year and I have a few other commitments. So I have brought the Trollies release forward by a couple of weeks.

Where Can I Buy Trollies?

The pattern is now available to buy in my Ravelry Store, in my Payhip Store, here on my website. Hurry though! All release discounts only last for the rest of today! The pattern is also be available on LoveCrafts but I am unable to offer a discount on there.

Tell Me More!

If you follow me on social media you may have seen one or two photos of these cute little shorts. Or if you have read my previous blog post My Trendy New Trollies Have Arrived! you will know that I designed this baby knit when my step-daughter was expecting her second baby.

She had not long found out that she was having a baby girl, and had requested a few things in pink and grey. I decided to go with grey for these shorts as they will be perfect for the baby to wear when playing on the floor with her big brother. But I also wanted to incorporate the pink so added a cute little bow.

If you want to have a look at some of the other things I knitted for my granddaughter you can see them in my earlier blog post Recent Knitting Patterns I Have Loved

The Lace

One of the things you will notice first about Trollies is the cute little lace detail on the bottom of the legs. This is a garter based lace and although it is quite simple it is also eye-catching. It is knitted separately and then the legs are picked up afterwards. If you wanted you could leave this off for a cleaner, simpler finish. You might also prefer to knit Trollies without it if you are making them for a little boy.

You could also knit the lace in a contrasting colour. One of my testers did this and I think it is super cute and effective. If you are like me and need portable projects to keep in your bag in case you find yourself waiting whilst running errands, this is perfect. You can easily knit the little lace sections on the go.

The Waistband

As you will see in the photos I finished off the waistband of my Trollies with a cute little pink bow. But I think it would look super cute if you used a button instead. A few of my testers used nothing at all and left the waistband plain. I put in some elastic in my pair, and have included instructions on how I did this in case you want to do it too. One of the testers made an i-cord and used this instead of elastic and used it to tie a pretty bow at the front.

Why not have a look at some of my testers project pages for some inspiration – Labedz Trollies, Eyenowhour’s Trollies, KenneyJane’s Trollies, Erin’s Trollies.

How Big Will You Go?

So how big is the little one you are planning to make these for? 12 months old? Not a problem at all! The pattern is graded for sizes from Preemie all the way up to one year. As I said earlier, the lace is knitted flat then the legs are picked up and knitted with the body being in the round. This means there is very little seaming to do at the end, just the little bit in the crotch. That makes this pattern perfect for knitters who don’t like to sew seams or weave in too many ends when they have finished.

Use All the Yarn!

Really these are a great stash buster project for all those bit and pieces of baby yarn you have left over from making cardigans and blankets. You could go wild and use a different colour for the lace, for the legs and even stripes on the body part. How many combinations of colours can you come up with?

The pattern is now available in my Ravelry store and here on my website with 15% off, you don’t need a code. You can also get the pattern in my Payhip store where you will need to use the code MyTrollies to get the discount. But hurry! The code expires in just a few hours! Don’t forget to make sure you are on my Email List so you get your excusive subscriber 30% discount for all my future pattern releases.

Did You Miss My Trendy New Trollies?

Coming Soon – My Trendy New Trollies?

Trollies! I am sorry, I just love the word trollies! It will probably come as no surprise to you that I have recently been working on a new knitting pattern and I just had to name it something fun. I know I usually release my new patterns on the last Tuesday of the month, but the end of November is looking pretty full for me. My husband is hoping to come home for the first time this year and I have a few other commitments. So I have brought this release forwards to Tuesday 10th November 2020.

If you follow me on social media you may have seen one or two photos of these cute little shorts. But if you haven’t you might not have seen these cuties, so let me introduce you now!

Earlier in the year I was busy knitting lots and lots of baby things for the upcoming arrival of a new granddaughter. I made a few pretty things like a ruffled dress and matching Knickers. But I also wanted to make something that was comfy for the baby to roll around on the floor in. I called them Trollies, and I think they will be perfect for when my granddaughter is learning to roll over and crawl after her big brother.
