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.

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.

Stunning Stanhope Sweater – Emma Sadler

Stunning Stanhope Sweater – Emma Sadler

Stunning Stanhope Sweater – V Neck by Emma Sadler

This jumper was designed and made whilst I was watching old episodes of Vera. I absolutely love her down to earth nature as well as her utilitarian style. I think this would appeal to her as it is simple enough to work on whilst busy with other things, but with that bit of interest that keeps you wondering what the next part will look like.

It is knitted top down, in the round. The sleeves are raglan and so are knitted together with the yoke, then separated when you get to the body. The sleeves are picked up later and also knitted in the round.

After joining the body in the round you will also add in a contrasting colour. Will you use it for the cuff at the bottom of the body or will you use the main colour?

The sample was knitted using West Yorkshire Spinners Signature 4-ply. The main colour is a solid yarn, with a variegated yarn to create a contrast at the bottom of the body. The sample uses Cardamom and Blue Tit.

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

Scroll down to check out the gallery of photos, both of my Stanhope and also those of my awesome testers. They’re scrumptious.

About the Stanhope Sweater Pattern

The Stanhope Sweatter pattern is knitted with 4ply or fingering weight sock yarn.    You could substitute any 4ply sock weight yarn. I used 3.25mm and 3.75mm needles. You could fade your yarns from top to bottom, or add extra stripes to use up the patterned yarn, it’s entirely up to you. Or, you can just relax, follow the pattern instructions and you’ll still have a gorgeous, cozy and comfortable sweater to 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. In this case, it’s for me and I saw this yarn and felt it was perfect for the sweater. I love West Yorkshire Spinner’s sock yarn and the plains/patterns work so well together, but you could use whatever sock yarn you have in your stash!

“Vera thought for a moment that she might have found a man if she’d scrubbed up a bit better, then decided that no man was worth the time it took to plaster stuff on your face in the morning, when you could have an extra cup of tea instead.”

Epic Boho Spring in Robin Hood’s Bay Hat by Emma Sadler

Epic Boho Spring in Robin Hood’s Bay Hat by Emma Sadler

Boho Style Spring in Robin Hood’s Bay Beret

This stylish, boho Spring in Robin Hood’s Bay hat pattern is the 4ply version of the Autumn in Robin Hood’s Bay beret. It combines sections of a traditional Old Shale pattern with stocking stitch.   

The Spring in Robin Hood’s Bay Boho style hat is knitted with 4ply / fingering weight yarn. It combines sections of a traditional Old Shale pattern with stocking stitch. It is designed to be worn with a close fitting rib band and then a much larger body. It is lightweight and therefore perfect for the changing seasons. I used what was left from a skein of sock yarn, so it’s the ideal project if you always end up with remnants.

The brim comes in small, medium or large. 17 (18, 19)“/43 (46, 48.5)cm. It has charted and written instructions plus a schematic.

The hat was knitted in The Knitting Goddess Britsock Yarn (40% British Bluefaced Leicester, 20% British Wensleydale, 20% British Alpaca, 20% Nylon) in colourway 15D Semi Solid Charcoal.

Thank you to my tech editor Linda Tabitha Thomas Studios
as well as all my wonderful test knitters.

About the Spring in Robin Hood’s Bay Boho Hat Pattern

The Spring in Robin Hood’s Bay Boho Hat pattern is knitted with yarn from The Knitting Goddess.  I used her 4ply Britsock yarn, linked below, and it’s a dream to work with.  The colour range is fabulous and you should check out her gradient sets.  I love to promote British yarns whenever I can, so do let me know your favourites.   I blocked my hat using a large dinner plate to show off the beautiful crown and give it the distinct Tam shape.

In this case, it’s for me and I saw this yarn and fell in love with it. Knit Picks Wool of the Andes is a superwash yarn and knits up beautifully, it’s warm, washes well and comes in a fantastic range of colours.
