New Pattern: Sweetdrop Cowl

On this gorgeous New England day—so bright and full of color—I'm excited to announce a new pattern that's just perfect for these crisp fall days. The Sweetdrop Cowl is now available in my Ravelry, Etsy, and Craftsy pattern stores, as well as at LoveKnitting.

Busy editing photos today for the new cowl pattern. Coming soon, in three sizes! #bluepeninsula #knitcowl #knit #knitting #knittersofinstagram #knitstagram
Pattern: Sweetdrop Cowl by Bonnie Sennott

You can make this cowl in one of three sizes—I made the smallest circumference, 24 inches; the other options are 32 and 48 inches. For each, you'll need 200 (275, 400) yards of DK weight yarn. For the sample, I used Zeta, a DK weight, hand-dyed wool/silk blend from Luna Grey Fiber Arts. The colorway is called Harbor, just one of many subtle, beautiful colors available from Luna Grey, where the pattern + yarn are available as a kit. I absolutely loved knitting up the cowl in Zeta. It is fabulously soft and the color—reminiscent of a shimmering lake—kept me entranced.


Sweetdrop is worked in the round on a circular needle—no seaming or grafting required. Featuring a pretty, easy-to-work textured stitch, it knits up quickly. Depending on the color you choose, it could easily be a unisex design—great for holiday gifts!


This is the fifth and final pattern in my All You Need Is One collection, featuring designs that require just one skein of yarn (the others are On the Other Hand, Conklaree, Hulst, and Hop Brook). I had fun putting this collection together throughout 2015 and trying out some new-to-me yarns like Luna Grey Zeta. I hope you've enjoyed it, too!

Credits and thanks go to:
  • Jenny for editing the pattern (superb work, as always!)
  • Jackie at Luna Grey Fiber Arts for offering the pattern as a kit. I hope you'll go take a look at her colorways and give Zeta a try. (Check out all the other kits, too!)

Thank you very much for reading.

It is absolutely stunning. Great work. I love that you knitted it in the round to avoid seaming.
