11 sc = 4 in. (10 cm). 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.


Cowl is worked in rnds.

At the end of each rnd, work a sl st to join last st to first st.

Turn work to begin the next rnd.


If you prefer, Rnd 1 can be worked as a row and then joined into a rnd.

This is an easy way to begin if you’re concerned about twisting the foundation chain.

To work Rnd 1 as a row, leave a yarn tail and ch 67, sc in 2nd ch from hook and each ch across.

At the end of the row, join the last st to the first with a sl st.

Use the yarn tail to close up the small opening left by working a row.


COWL Ch 66.

Taking care not to twist the ch; join with sl st in first ch to form a ring.

Rnd 1: Ch 1, sc in each ch around; join with sl st in first sc – 66 sc at the end of this round.

Rnd 2: Ch 3 (counts as first dc here and throughout), turn, dc in each sc around; join with sl st in top of turning ch.

Rnd 3: Ch 1, turn, sc in each dc around; join with sl st in first sc.

Repeat Rnds 2 and 3 until piece measures about 10 in.
