The Sweet Pea Cowl Knitting Pattern


Hello, my dear knitting friends!

I am so happy to introduce you to my newest knitting pattern, the Sweet Pea Cowl. This cowl is a true labor of love, knit with an exquisite yarn dyed by the talented Helen from @Untangledyarn. The yarn is a blend of 85% fine Superwash Merino and 15% Mulberry Silk, creating a luxurious and soft texture that is a joy to knit with.



When Helen first approached me to design a pattern for her @yarn.nstitches subscription box, I was immediately drawn to the beautiful colorway of the yarn, aptly named Sweet Pea. While I initially considered designing a beanie, I knew that this yarn deserved to be showcased in a piece that could be worn as a transition piece into the warmer months.



The Sweet Pea cowl features a delightful combination of yarn overs and a pretty texture created with slipped stitches. While this pattern is classified as intermediate, adventurous beginners will find it both challenging and rewarding. The pattern includes both written instructions and a chart, making it a great opportunity to practice chart reading for those who are less familiar with this style of pattern.

As we eagerly anticipate the arrival of Spring, I can't help but imagine wearing this cowl on top of my favorite t-shirts and dresses, adding a touch of elegance to my everyday outfits. The Sweet Pea colorway is perfect for the season, evoking the beauty of blooming flowers and the freshness of Spring.



I invite you to join me in knitting the Sweet Pea cowl and to share your creations with me on social media. Tag me (@yessysdesigns) and use the hashtag #sweetpeacowl or send me an email with pictures, to, of your finished cowl. I can't wait to see how you make this pattern your own!
