GAUGE:
9 1/2 dc = 8 in. (20.5 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.

NOTES:
1.

Cowl is worked in joined rnds.

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


2.

If you find it difficult to join the beg ch into a ring without twisting the ch, Rnd 1 can be worked as a row, then joined into a rnd, as follows: Ch 32, dc in 4th ch from hook (beg ch counts as dc), dc in each ch across; join with sl st in top of beg ch.

Proceed to Rnd 2.

When weaving in ends, use the beg tail to sew the ends of first row together.


INSTRUCTIONS
