8 1/2 sts + 13 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern. 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.

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

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

Cowl is worked in rnds, beg at lower edge with circular needle, then changing to double pointed needles when sts have been sufficiently decreased.


COWL With longer circular needle, cast on 108 sts.

Place marker for beg of rnd.

Join by working the first st on the left hand needle with the working yarn from the right hand needle and being careful not to twist sts.

Slip marker as you come to it.
