GAUGE:
15 dc = 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.

NOTES:
1.

Cowl is worked in joined rnds with RS always facing.

Do not turn at end of rnds.

2.

Each rnd consists of 2-dc groups alternated with shells.


a.

Rnds 1 and 4 alternate 2-dc groups and (3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc) shells.

b.

Rnd 2 alternates 2-dc groups and (dc, ch 1, dc, ch 1, dc, ch 1, dc) shells.

c.

Rnd 3 alternates 2-dc groups and (2 dc, ch 3, 2 dc) shells.



3.

Each 2-dc group is worked into the 2 dc of each group in the previous row.

The shells are worked directly above the shells in the previous row.

This creates columns of 2-dc groups and columns of shells (see Stitch Diagram).
