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.

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.

Memorable Mengham Shawl Pattern by Emma Sadler Designs

This shawl begins with a traditional semi-circle construction, alternating between a solid and variegated colourway. But I wanted to play around a little bit with the shaping and so I introduced short rows. I am really pleased with the way the stripes from the beginning section and the short rows meet.

The construction is quite simple, including the use of the short rows, which means this shawl is perfect for knitters who are new to shawls, as well as those who want something they can pick up and put down without having to worry about concentrating or losing their place within a pattern.

The whole shawl uses 2 100g balls of 4-ply/fingering weight yarn.

About the Mengham Shawl Pattern

The Mengham Shawl is approximately 99 inches x 16 inches and is designed to wrap around the wearer to create the illusion of layers. I don’t know what it is about the name but it does make me thing of Gangnam Style, perhaps I should rename it Mengham Style? What do you think?

Riveting Robin Hood’s Bay Scarf Pattern – Emma Sadler

Riveting Robin Hood’s Bay Scarf Pattern – Emma Sadler

Riveting Robin Hood’s Bay Pattern by Emma Sadler Designs

This Robin Hood’s Bay Scarf was designed following a visit to my LYS (local yarn shop). As soon as I walked into the shop the skein of yarn caught my eye. Try as I might, I just couldn’t walk away from it! The colour, the softness of the yarn just called to me.

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 lightweight wool means it has an interesting drape. It is loose, light and airy which is perfect for the transition the weather of spring brings. There is a matching hat in a beret/tam style for a little boho chic.

The skein was West Yorkshire Spinners Exquisite (80% Falkland wool, 20% mulberry silk) in colourway Savoy 371. Both the hat and the scarf can be made from one skein. Why did I called it rivieting? I suppose the alliteration appeals to me but also because it was one of those projects where I just had to knit one more row …..

The hat can be found here

About the Robin Hood’s Bay Scarf Pattern

I used a skein of West Yorkshire Spinners (WYS) Exquisite (80% Falkland wool, 20% mulberry silk) in colourway Savoy 371. You could easily knit the beret and the scarf from the same skein of yarn. The yarn itself has a beautiful but gentle sheen, from the silk content and is buttery soft.

Sensational Staindrop Socks Pattern – Emma Sadler

Sensational Staindrop Socks Pattern by Emma Sadler Designs

These socks were designed during a phase when I was obsessed with the Old Shale stitch and how it could be paired with sections of stocking stitch. The lace stitch goes down the back and front of the leg, stops at the heel on the back but carries on to the toe on the front.

The construction is a cuff down, and they come in 8 sizes from toddler, through womens and to mens sizes.

A pair of large mens socks can be made from one ball of 100g 4-ply/fingering weight sock yarn.

About the Sensational Staindrop Socks Pattern

The Everglade Tam is knitted with dk weight yarn.    You could substitute any DK weight yarn. I used 3.5mm and 4mm needles and King Cole Glitz Double Knitting . The Hat / Beanie pattern has instructions for three sizes from 17 to 22 inch brim to fit a broad range of heads and hair volume. The design features a reverse stocking stitch background on the cable panel, to show off the cable stitches and let them shine.

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, I loved the Merida colourway of the 4ply / fingering weight yarn. As Merida lived at Dunbroch, it was the obvious name for the sock pattern, a bit feisty, fun and a way to showcase a variegated yarn.
