Waves Encore Headband by Emma Sadler Designs

The Waves Encore Headband is perfect for the autumn and winter weather. Unlike hats it will not come off if you are taking part in an activity outdoors or if it is too windy. It is a perfect fit, not too tight and not too loose.

Maybe you need something for walking the dog, or out on the golf course? Perhaps you are looking for a quick gift to make someone? This ear warmer can be made in just a few hours making it the perfect knit for in front of the TV one evening.

The pattern uses ribs and cables to make an interesting wave type effect. The ribbing means that tension is not essential. Therefore it is the perfect project for a less experienced knitter. It uses just one skein of 50g yarn.

You will be able to knit the headband from approximately 100 yards of Aran yarn for the largest size.

Crush It with the Corn Rows Cabled Headband

Crush It with the Corn Rows Cabled Headband

Crush It with the Corn Rows Cabled Headband by Emma Sadler Designs

The Corn Rows Cabled Boot Toppers were designed to match the very popular Corn Rows Cabled Headband shown here.

This headband is designed with an interesting corn rows cable going down the middle. The cabled headband is knitted flat and then seamed at the end. The front of the headband is wider than the back. This is achieved using increases and decreases to create the shaping. It’s easy and a very fast knit.

The Cabled Headband comes in four sizes from baby to adult and takes less than 1 skein of 50g yarn to complete. It makes a quick and easy gift and you could whip one up in an evening in front of the TV. The baby headband uses only approximately 50 yards of yarn so it’s a great stashbuster.

You will be able to knit the headband from 100 yards of Aran yarn for the largest size.

Crush It with the Corn Rows Cabled Boot Toppers by Emma Sadler Designs

The Corn Rows Cabled Boot Toppers were designed to match the very popular Corn Rows Cabled Headband. They are knitted flat and seamed at the end. The cabled section is knitted first and the stitches for the ribbing are picked up and knitted at the end.

The cabled pattern is very effective, but deceptively easy. You will soon pick up the repeating pattern. The boot toppers are the ideal project for working on whilst you are watching the TV or to have in your project bag as a travel project. I often have something easy like this with me for appointments, football practice and when I’m acting as a Taxi for the kids. The Cabled Boot Toppers are 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.

You will be able to knit the pair from a 100g ball of aran weight yarn.

Luxurious Slip Stitch Doing Alright Cowl by Emma Sadler

Luxurious Slip Stitch Doing Alright Cowl by Emma Sadler

Luxurious, Slip Stitch Doing Alright Cowl by Emma Sadler

The luxurious, slip stitich Doing Alright Cowl is the original version of Doing Great which I designed on a train journey to London to celebrate my daughter’s 16th birthday as well as finishing her exams and school.

The slipped stitches section is representative of the journey there and back. The stripe section is for all the sightseeing and the show we went to see.

It went far too quickly and all too soon we were on our way home again. The plain sections are the lovely chilled out times we spent together in the hotel or in the restaurant.

The Doing Alright cowl is knitted in the round in one piece. It starts with a provisional cast on and then the ends are seamed together to finish. It uses two colours of lace weight yarn to show off the easy, but effective, slip-stitch pattern.

It was knitted in Sylvan Tiger Yarn Methera Lace a BFL and Silk blend. The Doing Alright cowl comes in small, medium and large width. The length can be adjusted to be longer or shorter as well.

And it knits up beautifully for a warm, but lightweight and stylish cowl.

This pattern is made possible by my wonderful test knitters and tech editor. Thank you!

About the Doing Alright Cowl Pattern

The Doing Alright Cowl 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 to create a warm fabric but if you wanted a drapier cowl, you could go up to a larger needle size. You’d use more yarn, so allow for that when choosing your colours.

Some of you might be seeing a theme here and the name is inspired by the songs of Queen. I’m a big fan of Queen and love to design with them in mind. What inspires you to either knit or design?

Doing Alright 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.  It’s stunningly soft and silky, it comes in a lovely range of colours too, but you could substitute any laceweight yarn that gets tension/gauge.

“I will go to bed after this row.”
