Crave-worthy Julestrompes Christmas Stockings Emma Sadler

These Christmas stockings are knitted using Cascade Yarns Heritage Solid in red, green and white. They use a cuff down and heel cuff method of sock knitting with Scandinavian style motifs. The toe is finished using Kitchener stitch for which there is a link to a video tutorial.

The pattern includes instructions to make four styles of Christmas stockings.

Christmas Stockings Variations One and Two use stranded colour work to create the motifs, these could be mixed and matched to create more possibilities.

Christmas Stockings Variations Three and Four use stripes for more of a candy cane effect. You will be able to make all four stockings from the three skeins of yarn.

The instructions for the stockings include charts for the motifs as well as written instructions.

The Christmas Stockings will look fabulous on the mantelpiece as decorations for your Christmas festivities. You could even hide a small gift or two in them. A real heirloom gift to pass down through the family and one that will be much treasured by the recipients.

The pattern includes a schematic, written and charted instructions. It has been professionally tech edited as well as test knitted.

About the Julestrompes Christmas Stockings

Heritage Solids & Quatro by Cascade Yarns ® Fingering / 4 ply – 75% Merino, 25% Nylon – 400 meters / 100 grams. I used a single skein each of three colours red, green and white.

The stockings are knitted cuff down with a proper heel flap and will hold a number of small gifts or other fun surprises.

The stranded colourwork motifs could be mixed and matched easily to create an extra stocking or two for larger families. You don’t have to stick to red, white and greenn. You could choose colours based on the college they’re attending, favourite sports teams or Harry Potter house colours. Have fun with it and make them with lots of love.

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.

Indulgent Brookland Cowl – Emma Sadler

Indulgent Brookland Cowl – Emma Sadler

Indulgent, Luxurious Brookland Cowl by Emma Sadler

The Brookland Cowl, a stranded colourwork piece, was designed after deciding I wanted a lovely thick material for the winter months that didn’t have a wrong side. Sometimes when you are wearing a cowl it flips over and you don’t see the pattern anymore. That won’t happen with this one. It is also a great project for practising your fair isle or stranded colourwork skills.

The Brookland Cowl is knitted in one piece, in the round. You start with a provisional cast on and finish by grafting the stitches together. This means there is no seam visible when you have finished and any ends are hidden inside the cowl.

There is a repeated section in the middle of the cowl, so you can make the cowl longer or shorter depending upon your personal preference.

The cowl patter uses DK wool in three colours. The main, dark brown colour, a lighter brown and a contrasting blue to add a pop of colour to an otherwise neutral piece.

I’ve shown some close ups of the colourwork and motifs in the Gallery below to give you and idea of how flexible and varied this pattern can be.

This pattern is produced with the invaluable help of my test knitters and my tech editor – Tabitha Thomas Studios

About the Brookland Cowl Stranded Pattern

The Brookland Cowl stranded colourwork pattern is knitted with dk weight yarn.    You could substitute any DK weight yarn. I used 4mm needles and Paintbox Yarns Simply DK . You can choose to lengthen or shorten the loop of the cowl to suit your preferences, there is a repeated pattern which you can work as many times as you like, or crop to make a shorter loop to wrap once around the neck. It’s up to you.

You’re only ever working with two colours at a time to keep things simple.

Gorgeous Brookland Cowl Pattern Gallery

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. In this case, it’s for me and I saw this yarn and felt it was perfect for the cowl. I chose colours with good contrast, two browns and a pop of colour from the blue. What colours will you choose for your Brookland Cowl?

I will consider that intarsia, or Fair Isle with three or more colors in a row, prepares nobody for sleep and cursing loudly while flinging knitting around the living room is about as far away from soothing as you can get.
