Ethel Shrug Pattern by Emma Sadler Designs

Ethel Shrug or Bolero patttern is one of three shrugs in a set, using the same basic shape but worked with a different type of knitting stitch. These shrugs are perfect to pop over your shoulders when you are watching TV, relaxing on the sofa or to cover up a little when sitting outside. The super chunky wool will keep you warm, even on the chilliest of evenings!

They are mainly knitted in a rectangle, from the bottom up, this time using garter stitch and stripes. There is a little shaping at the back of the neck using short rows. The arm holes are made at the end by folding the edges together and sewing them up just part of the way. As it uses super chunky weight yarn the shrug will knit up quickly. Perfect if you want to whip up a quick gift for a loved one! The Edith shrug is knitted with the diagonal basket weave stitch. This is a really eye-catching stitch which looks more difficult than it is.

It is knitted bottom up, with set in sleeves and the band down the front and round the neck are picked up and knitted. The stockinette stitch makes it perfect for a variegated yarn but would also look fabulous in a plain colour.

The Edna shrug is knitted in stocking stitch, and is ideal as a project for a new knitter. As it uses super chunky weight yarn the shrug will knit up quickly.

Light Nunthorpe Evening Shawl by Emma Sadler

Light Nunthorpe Evening Shawl by Emma Sadler

Light Nunthorpe Evening Shawl Emma Sadler

There is a little bit of a story behind the name of Nunthorpe Evening shawl which is a hap style shawl.

Recently I was at my local WI meeting and I was nervously stood at the front of this group of very talented ladies talking about how I design knitting patterns. This shawl was my current WIP and although it was still in the early stages, it created a lot of interest as I sat knitting it that evening. So I decided to name the shawl after the group – Nunthorpe Evening.

It has a traditional half-hap construction, with a garter stitch centre panel. This is surrounded by a much tighter, Shetland version of Feather and Fan stitch, finished off with a delicate lace edging. As the sections are joined by picking up and knitting or knitting stitches together, there is no sewing up to do to join the three sections.

The whole shawl uses 65g of mohair and silk blend laceweight yarn. I used Drops Kid Silk but it would look lovely in a different lace yarn.

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

Heartwarming Hayling Island Shawl by Emma Sadler

Heartwarming Hayling Island Shawl by Emma Sadler

Heartwarming Hayling Island Shawl Emma Sadler

This shawl was designed for my Mum’s 70th birthday present. She lives on the south coast of England on a small island – Hayling Island. She is allergic to some natural fibres and so I decided to use soft acrylic baby yarn for her.

It has a traditional half-hap construction, with a garter stitch central panel. This is surrounded by a border and finished off with a delicate lace edging. The colours and shapes remind me of the Island; the dark blue of the centre and edging represents the sea which surrounds the beige of the sand and pebbles on the shore, the green of the countryside and the light blue and white of the sky.

The whole shawl uses 175g of 4ply baby yarn, of which 110g was the MC used for the central triangle and lace. The border section is ideal for using up small amounts from stash. You could chose to use more or less colours.

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

About the Heartwarming Hayling Island Shawl Pattern

The Cowl comes in one size and uses 150g approx of sport weight and around 25g of lace weight. I combined a smooth sport weight with a mohair lace weight to add a textural element as well as a change in colours.

Captivating Cumulus Cloud Wrap Emma Sadler

Captivating Cumulus Cloud Wrap Emma Sadler

Captivating Cumulus Cloud Wrap Emma Sadler

I designed the Cumulous Cloud Wrap / shawl with the spring clouds in mind, the way they seem to be almost not there one moment and then thick and fluffy the next. I love the interesting shapes they make in the sky and they way puff and billow across the sun so you can be in dazzling sunlight one moment and in the darkest shade the next.

First published in Knit Now magazine, the wrap is knitted from bottom up and flat; there is no shaping or picking up stitches and it uses a garter stitch base so its perfect for knitters who are new to lace shawls. The pattern is worked over four rows with a change of yarn after each repeat. The two different weights of yarn creates an interesting drape as well as adding a sense of drama to the shawl.

It is one size and takes approx 150g of sport weight yarn and 25g of lace weight.

The pattern has been Tech Edited and Tested.

Speedy Scarborough Fair Cowl – Emma Sadler

Speedy Scarborough Fair Cowl – Emma Sadler

Scarborough Fair Cowl Pattern by Emma Sadler Designs

This cowl was designed in the same weekend that I ran the Yorkshire Coast 10k race in Scarborough. The weather wasn’t particularly great after a storm had hit overnight and so the sea was quite rough. The view from the top of the cliffs, down over the sea and looking towards the fair made me think of the wavy lines in this pattern.

The Scarborough Fair Cowl is a fast knit, worked in the round, with the lace worked on odd numbered rounds and all even numbered rounds just knit across. There is a section of garter stitch at the top and the bottom to prevent curling.

The cowl pattern has a small and a large version. The large cowl will take a full skein of yarn and the small cowl around half a skein. There is a chart for the lace as well as written instructions and it includes a schematic.

All my patterns have been tech edited and test knitted.

Thank you to my tech editor – Tabatha Thomas Studio

The Cowl comes in two sizes:

  • Small: 48cm (19in) circumference by 19cm (7.5in)
