Elaine’s Scottish Run Boho Beret – Emma Sadler

Elaine’s Scottish Run Boho Beret – Emma Sadler

Elaine’s Scottish Run Boho Beret by Emma Sadler

I designed this beret for one of my running friends, Elaine; she had requested that I make her a red beret. This was at the same time that we were away for a double parkrun over the New Year. We weren’t in Scotland, but someone that she knew seemed to think we were. From then on this particular trip become affectionately known as ‘Elaine’s Scottish Run’.

The hat is a tam style with a providional cast on and double brim ribbed section. The stitch count is then increased for the main body before swirling decreases at the crown.

The samples were knitted in Stylecraft Special DK (100% acrylic) in colourway Burgundy 1035 and Sublime Baby Cashmere Merino Silk DK (75% Merino, 20% silk, 5% cashmere). Or choose your own favourite DK weight yarn. The pattern comes in small, medium and large.

Produced with huge thanks to my tech editor – Tabitha Thomas Studios and my wonderful test knitters.

About the Elaine’s Scottish Run Beret Pattern

The Elderwood Walk Beret pattern is knitted with dk weight yarn.    You could substitute any soft dk weight yarn. I I used 4mm needles but if you wanted a drapier fabric, you could go up to a larger needle size. You might use more yarn, so allow for that when choosing your colours.

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

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

Boho Style Summer in Robin Hood’s Bay Beret

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

This hat was designed following a visit to my LYS. As soon as I walked into the shop the skein of yarn caught my eye, and try as I might, I just couldn’t walk away from it!

This is the same as how I feel about Robin Hood’s Bay, which is why I named the set after this beautiful part of Yorkshire. I am drawn to the place, again and again. The pattern reflects the pull of
the sea in the dramatic colour, the plains of the North York Moors in the sections of stocking stitch as well as the dramatic cliff edges in the lace.

The hat is a beret/tam style; the shape combined with the lightweight wool means it has an interesting drape. It is big, loose, light and airy which is perfect for the transition the weather of spring brings to the UK. There is a matching scarf which is ideal for beginners to lace.

The skein was West Yorkshre Spinners Exquisite (80% Falkland wool, 20% mulberry silk) in colourway Savoy 371. Both the hat and the scarf can be made from one skein.

The scarf can be found here

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.

Thank you to my tech editor Linda Tabitha Thomas Studios

About the Summer 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.

Breathtaking Boho Elderwood Walk Beret – Emma Sadler

Breathtaking Boho Elderwood Walk Beret – Emma Sadler

Breathtaking Boho Elderwood Walk Beret by Emma Sadler

This stitch patter for the gorgeous Elderwood Breeze Beret pattern reminds me of taking a stroll in the woods near my home. The trees are ancient and seem to interweave with each other in an interesting way. Sometimes you can see through them, and sometimes they are too densely packed together.

The hat is a tam style with a ribbed section then increased for the main body before decreases at the crown. The sections of stocking stitch become narrower as the hat gets smaller which is representative of the shape of the trees.

It is knitted in the round and comes in three sizes for the brim. It has written and charted instructions.

The hat was knitted in Stylecraft Bellissima (100% acrylic) in colourway Rio Red 3932. It was recently voted Runner Up in a Stylecraft/Knit Now magazine design competition.

The cowl was knitted in Stylecraft Bellissima (100% acrylic) in colourway Rio Red 3932. It comes in small, medium and large width.

The matching cowl can be found here – Elderwood Breeze Cowl

Breathtaking Elderwood Breeze Cowl – Emma Sadler

Breathtaking Elderwood Breeze Cowl by Emma Sadler

This stitch patter for the gorgeous Elderwood Breeze Cowl pattern reminds me of taking a stroll in the woods near my home. The trees are ancient and seem to interweave with each other in an interesting way. Sometimes you can see through them, and sometimes they are too densely packed together.

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 for in front of the TV. It uses a provisional cast on and then the two ends are Kitchenered together.

The cowl was knitted in Stylecraft Bellissima (100% acrylic) in colourway Rio Red 3932. It comes in small, medium and large width.

The matching hat can be found here – Elderwood Walk

Glamorous Keep Yourself Alive Shawl – Emma Sadler

Glamorous Keep Yourself Alive Shawl – Emma Sadler

Glamorous, Keep Yourself Alive Shawl by Emma Sadler

The luxurious, slip stitich Keep Yourself Alive Shawl is a mini-shawl or scarf named for one of my favourite Queen songs. One of the lines is “But if I crossed a million rivers, And I rode a million miles, Then I’d still be where I started.”

This shawl starts and finishes with a garter section worked the main colour, so just like the song, you will work many stitches but will finish how you started.

In the main part of the shawlette, two colours of lace weight yarn are alternated in different patterns to create an interesting and eye-catching effect.

Keep Yourself Alive is a perfectly lightweight summer knit with the delicate lace yarn, and the asymmetric shape of the finished shawl which gives it an interesting drape.

It was knitted in Sylvan Tiger Yarn (55% British BFL wool, 45% silk) in Onion Skin and Leafy Green. This yarn makes for a wonderfully soft fabric which can be worn in a variety of ways.

The pattern comes with both written and charted instructions as well as a schematic.

Thank you to my tech editor Linda at Tabitha Thomas Studio and my wonderful test knitters who helped make this pattern possible.

About the Keeping Yourself Alive Shawl Pattern

The Keep Yourself Alive Shawl pattern is knitted with lace weight yarn.    You could substitute any lace weight yarn or combine a smooth yarn with kid silk to add texture. I used 2.5mm needles but if you wanted a drapier shawll, you could go up to a larger needle size. You might use more yarn, so allow for that when choosing your colours.

In this case, it’s for me and I saw this yarn and felt it was perfect for the shawl.  It’s light, silky with the warmth of the BFL and is amazing to knit with. I can’t praise it highly enough and I love working with it.
