Rainshowers Cowl

In Cowls, DK weight yarn, Patterns, Shop sample available, Sport weight yarn by Shannon

April showers bring May flowers, or so they say. In the Pacific Northwest, sometimes April showers bring more showers. This cowl was custom-made to keep you cosy and protect you from any shower that deigns to come your way. There are two versions – a single loop that doubles as a snood or hood, and a double loop that can be worn long wrapped twice for maximum coziness.


  • Finished Measurements: Single loop (double loop): 24” wide, 25” circumference (11” wide, 52” circumference).
  • Yarn: approximately 500-550 yards sport-weight yarn. I used Blue Moon Fiber Arts Silky Victoria, colorways Help Us, Rhonda (pink, single loop) and Enchanted Forest (green, double loop).
  • Needles: US6/4mm needle for flat knitting, or size needed to get gauge.
  • Notions: cable needle, stitch markers, tapestry needle.
  • Gauge: 22 stitches = 4”/10 cm in stockinette stitch, after blocking.
