Designer Ariane Gallizziwas creating this pattern just as Texas was hit by hurricane Harvey on August 25, 2017. That is how the Texas Rains Shawlette got its name. At the time, Arianne decided to give out the pattern for free but to ask knitters to consider donating to the American Red Cross to help the Texan hurricane victims.
Ariane originally designed this shawlette with a Caron® CupcakeTM, which included a hat pattern and fuzzy pom pom. You can knit this pattern using any DK-weight yarn and add your own hand-made (or purchased) pom pom or tassel to the tip.
