Additional Materials
Circular needle size 7 (4.5 mm), 24 in. (61 cm) long
GAUGE:
18 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st worked in the rnd (k every rnd). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.

NOTES:
1. Entire Cowl is worked in St st in the rnd (k every rnd).
2. Follow Chart from right to left on every rnd, working 24-st rep shown on Chart a total of 4 times around.
