Cadalach Sleep Sack Baby Sleeping Bag by Emma Sadler

Cadalach Sleep Sack Baby Sleeping Bag by Emma Sadler

Cadalach Sleep Sack Pattern by Emma Sadler Designs

I designed this baby sleeping bag for my step-grandson. His mum wanted something snuggly for him to sleep in during the day.

It is knitted in one long piece and then folded in half. The borders are picked up and knitted and the hood is added last.

The hood is finished by using Kitchener stitch to graft it together at the end. As the buttons hold the sides together there is no seaming to do.

Once you get into the rhythm, the long cabled section in the middle is perfect for knitting when you don’t want to concentrate too much.

As the sleeping bag is not fitted to the baby and they can wriggle around I wouldn’t recommend it for unsupervised sleeping.

The finished item takes around 600-1100g of chunky weight yarn.

As always, when I’m knitting for the knitworthy members of my family or dear friends, I consider how they’re going to wear it, wash it, the colours they love and what styles they wear.

Blaine Baby Blanket Pattern by Emma Sadler

Blaine Baby Blanket Pattern by Emma Sadler

Blaine Baby Blanket Pattern by Emma Sadler Designs

I wanted to make a blanket that was delicate enough to wrap a baby in as soon as they are born. Something that would look beautiful to bring the baby home in or to wrap them in whilst they sleep in the pram or cot.

This blanket has a delicate ‘dot’ stitch which gives the effect of lace without having lots of holes that tiny fingers and toes can get stuck in.

It is one size and takes approx 200g of 4ply baby yarn.

Adorable Arthur’s Seat Blanket Pattern for a Baby Blanket by Emma Sadler Designs

The Arthur’s Seat Blanket pattern was designed for my new great-nephew, Arthur, who was born earlier this year. I wanted to use squares of different colours but I didn’t want to end up having to sew them all together. I used two shades of grey and a cream, some squares were knitted in one colour and some in two to create a more interesting pattern when they were lined up.

I am in love with garter stitch, I found it really stretchy and with an interesting texture and drape. The mitred squares are made first and then stitches are picked up around the edges in order to knit them together. The outside border is knitted in the round, and the construction means it isn’t a perfect square, but instead has slightly pointed corners.

It is one size and takes approx 650g of DK weight baby yarn.

Thank you to my tech editor – Tabatha Thomas

Why the Arthur’s Seat Baby Blanket?

Why did I choose to name the Arthur’s Seat Blanket pattern after Arthur’s Seat?   In this case the name came firstly from my great nephew who is called Arthur and I knitted this baby blanket as a gift for him.  But, anyone who has ever been, or would love to visit Edinburgh, will have heard of Arthur’s Seat.   Arthur’s Seat is an extinct volcano and the path up Salisbury Crags is the site of the radical road which has a fascinating history linked to the weaver’s (radicals) who came to the city and built the radical road to the summit of Arthur’s Seat.

Baby blankets are an awesome gift, why is that?

I think blankets are such a thoughtful gift for new Mum’s for their baby.   They’re super handy for in the car on cold morning’s when you’ve got the baby in a car seat and want to keep them warm while the car warms up.  They’re great to throw on the sofa for when you’re nursing the baby, reading or just enjoying time together.  It feels like a warm hug and it’ll have your scent on it, to calm a crying baby when needed.   A baby blanket also helps to keep Mum warm too, while she’s cuddling baby or making the most of a little cat nap while the little one is fast asleep.

Arthur’s Seat Blanket for baby is a fabulous heirloom to pass down the family

They might use the Arthur’s Seat blanket when they have their own children and grandchildren in future generations.  The Arthur’s Seat Blanket is knitted with love in every stitch, how utterly cool is that?  What colours will you knit your Blanket in?   A rainbow?  Neutrals or with pops of bright colour?  I’d love to see them.

Fashions might change, but a knitted or crochet blanket always reminds us of home, of safety, of comfort and time with family.
