Stormtrooper in Stilettos Cowl by Emma Sadler Designs

The Stormtrooper in Stilettos Cowl pattern is named after one of my favourite Queen songs – She Makes Me (Stormtrooper in Stilettoes). The central cable panel is delicate and interesting in the way it ebbs and flows from loops to lines. The delicacy is like the stilettoes, but the lines is reminiscent of row upon row of men.

The cowl is knitted as a double fabric in the round. It has the stitch effect on the front and plain stocking stitch on the back. It can be made narrower or longer to suit the wearer’s personal preference. Once the pattern is established this is a great project to do in front of the TV. It uses a provisional cast on and then the two ends are joined together with Kitchener stitch.

The cowl was knitted in WYS Signature 4ply (75% wool, 25% nylon) in colourway Dusty Miller 129. It comes in small, medium and large. The yarn is made with 40% Wool, 35% Bluefaced Leicester, 25% Nylon and has approximately 400 meters per 100 gram ball.

This pattern wouldn’t be possible without the help of my tech editor, Linda at TabithaThomas or my wonderful test knitters.

The cowl patter is also quite quick to knit up so would make a great last minute gift if you find yourself needing to whip something up from your stash.

About the Stormtrooper in Stilettos Cowl

This easy, fast-knit cowl is a sure winner for Christmas or gift knitting. I’ve designed the cowl in three widths (or heights) but you can easily also adjust the length to make a longer loop, but you’ll need more yarn.

If you prefer a neutral colour, like the samples I’ve shown, it’ll go with pretty much anything. Don’t, however, be afraid of a bold or bright colour to make a real statement piece to go with your best Winter coat.

If you fancy a heavier weight cowl, you could make the shortest width/height using a thicker yarn, a DK or Worsted for example, use larger needles, it’d be lovely and warm for Winter.

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.
