Cumulonimbus clouds pile up against a darkening sky and catch the low-setting sun, flushing pink. Knit this squishy stormy cowl in a similar colourway, or change the weather and choose sky-blue for the darkest colour with grey and white for the clouds.

Uses 3 x 100g skeins of Malabrigo Rios merino (or similar DK/worsted weight) in 3 coordinating colours which vary in tone from dark, mid, and light. Sample used colours Pearl Ten (dark), Nimbus Gray (mid), and Valentina (light).

You will need 3.5mm needles, and a spare needle for the kitchener seam at the end (unless you’re using a pair of straights). You will also need a small amount of waste yarn in a similar gauge, and a tapestry needle.

Size is a generous 18 inches wide x 11 inches tall, laid flat.
disclaimer: it has been brought to my attention that my choice of name for this design; which arose from an experience i had when observing the sky one afternoon; may be linked in some people’s minds with a certain community of people whose values promote thought patterns and behaviours that are in opposition to basic human rights and decency. please be aware that if you had concerns along these lines, there is absolutely no connection or influence from that community in this or any of my designs. i am deliberately refraining from directly referencing this group because i do not wish to give them any form of publicity.
