(74 cm) long (for Cowl) MATERIALS NOTES 1. Two hanks of yarn are needed to make Cowl only. 2. Back and Front of Pullover are worked on straight needles.

GAUGE:
23 sts + 26 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in cable patterns with larger needles. 20 sts + 25 rnds = 4 in. (10 cm) in K2, p2 Rib worked in the rnd with double pointed needles. 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.

STITCH EXPLANATION:
kfb (knit in front and back) Knit next st without removing it from left needle, then k through back of same st - 1 st increased.

M1 (make 1) An increase worked by lifting horizontal thread lying between needles and placing it onto left needle.

Knit this new stitch through the back loop - 1 st increased.

3/3 LC (3 over 3 left cross) Slip 3 sts to cable needle and hold in front, k3, then k3 from cable needle.

4/2 RC Inc (4 over 2 right cross increase) Slip 2 sts to cable needle and hold in back, k4, then (kfb, k1) from cable needle - 1 st increased.

4/3 RC (4 over 3 right cross)Slip 3 sts to cable needle and hold in back, k4, then k3 from cable needle.
