Introducing: Raindrops to Rainbows

10:15:00 PM

Rainbows to Raindrops is a garter stitch cowl has a repeating pattern of raised ribs in different lengths that remind me of raindrops.

The cowl is knit in the round on circular needles to eliminate seaming in the final step. Nearly an entire skein of Malabrigo Arroyo in the colorway Arco Iris was used to make the cowl in the photos.

This pattern is a great one to use with highly variegated yarns since the “raindrops” or raised ribs pop and stand out against the monotony of a garter stitch background. The raised ribs are made by knitting into the stitch below your left hand needle (k1b).

This design also works well with solid and semi-solid yarns as well as other yarn weights. Just keep in mind that the thicker the yarn you use, the larger your cowl will be.

Raindrops to Rainbows is available on Ravelry here.
