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.

Sensational Staindrop Socks 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, 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.

Dazzling Dunbroch Socks Pattern – Emma Sadler

Dazzling Dunbroch Socks Pattern by Emma Sadler Designs

These socks were designed when I was playing around with how many rows of stocking stitch I wanted to put in a repeating pattern. In the end I liked the effect and so it stayed! The lace stitch goes around the whole leg, stops at the heel 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. The colourway of the wool I used was called Merida. She came from Dunbroch, hence the name of the pattern.

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

Pattern includes a schematic and has been test knitted.

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.

Stunner Stanhope Sweater 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 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.”

― Ann Cleeves, The Moth Catcher
