Northney Sweater Pattern for Kids by Emma Sadler

Northney Sweater Pattern by Emma Sadler Designs

This Northney Sweater pattern, or jumper pattern, was designed for my grandson to wear during this winter. The sweater is knitted in the round, in one piece from the top down, with the sleeve stitches put onto scrap yarn and finished after the body.

The sweater has a yoke which is knitted in Sirdar Baby Crofter, the rest of the jumper is knitted in the plain Sirdar Baby Snuggly. The edgings are worked in garter stitch.

The whole jumper uses between 130g and 300g of DK baby yarn, of which approx 1/3 is the Crofter yarn used for the yoke and edgings. This is a lovely yarn which gives the effect of fair isle.

Sandy Point Kids Hoodie Pattern by Emma Sadler

Sandy Point Kids Hoodie Pattern by Emma Sadler

Sandy Point Kids Hoodie Pattern by Emma Sadler Designs

This Sandy Point Kids Hoodie Sweater pattern, or jumper pattern, was designed for my grandson to wear during this winter.

This jumper was designed with my grandson in mind, but it would look fabulous on a girl too. It is top down, the main part of the body is in one piece with no seaming. The arms and neck are knitted using short rows. I added a hood as I like to think of this as a child surfer’s garment.

The body is knitted in Sirdar Snuggly Baby Crofter and the arms and hood are knitted in the plain Sirdar Snuggly. This gives a vest type impression when it is finished. Why not experiment with different yarns, including plain and patterned?

The whole jumper uses between 130g and 350g of DK baby yarn, of which approx 1/3 is the Crofter yarn. This is a lovely yarn which gives the effect of fair isle, without having to work with multiple colours.

Indulgent Brookland Cowl – Emma Sadler

Indulgent Brookland Cowl – Emma Sadler

Indulgent, Luxurious Brookland Cowl by Emma Sadler

The Brookland Cowl, a stranded colourwork piece, was designed after deciding I wanted a lovely thick material for the winter months that didn’t have a wrong side. Sometimes when you are wearing a cowl it flips over and you don’t see the pattern anymore. That won’t happen with this one. It is also a great project for practising your fair isle or stranded colourwork skills.

The Brookland Cowl is knitted in one piece, in the round. You start with a provisional cast on and finish by grafting the stitches together. This means there is no seam visible when you have finished and any ends are hidden inside the cowl.

There is a repeated section in the middle of the cowl, so you can make the cowl longer or shorter depending upon your personal preference.

The cowl patter uses DK wool in three colours. The main, dark brown colour, a lighter brown and a contrasting blue to add a pop of colour to an otherwise neutral piece.

I’ve shown some close ups of the colourwork and motifs in the Gallery below to give you and idea of how flexible and varied this pattern can be.

This pattern is produced with the invaluable help of my test knitters and my tech editor – Tabitha Thomas Studios

About the Brookland Cowl Stranded Pattern

The Brookland Cowl stranded colourwork pattern is knitted with dk weight yarn.    You could substitute any DK weight yarn. I used 4mm needles and Paintbox Yarns Simply DK . You can choose to lengthen or shorten the loop of the cowl to suit your preferences, there is a repeated pattern which you can work as many times as you like, or crop to make a shorter loop to wrap once around the neck. It’s up to you.

You’re only ever working with two colours at a time to keep things simple.

Gorgeous Brookland 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. I chose colours with good contrast, two browns and a pop of colour from the blue. What colours will you choose for your Brookland Cowl?

I will consider that intarsia, or Fair Isle with three or more colors in a row, prepares nobody for sleep and cursing loudly while flinging knitting around the living room is about as far away from soothing as you can get.

Stunning Stanhope Sweater – Emma Sadler

Stunning Stanhope Sweater – Emma Sadler

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.

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!
