GAUGE:
18 sts + 24 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) 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 into front and then back) An increase worked as follows: 1.

Knit the next st through the front loop, but do not remove the st from your left-hand needle.

2.

Knit the same st once more, this time inserting your needle through the back loop of the st.

You will have created 2 loops (sts) on your right-hand needle.

3.

Drop the st from your left-hand needle - you have increased 1 st.

ssk (slip, slip, knit) Slip next 2 sts as if to knit, one at a time, to right needle; insert left needle into fronts of these 2 sts and knit them tog - 1 st decreased.

NOTES:
· Entrelac knitting consists of rows of triangles and blocks that are worked in short rows.

Short rows are rows that are worked over a portion of the sts in a row, leaving the remaining sts unworked.

To work short rows, the pattern instructions will tell you to 'turn' before you reach the end of the row.

· Follow the instructions for each row carefully and be sure to keep track of your place in the pattern.

· Stitch markers are used to make it easier to see the beginning and end of each short row triangle or block.

Move the position of the markers following the pattern instructions, being careful to move the beg of the row marker or the end of row marker as specified in the pattern.

Use different color markers so that you can distinguish the beg of the row marker from the end of the row marker.

· The Cowl begins with a section of foundation triangles, then half triangles and blocks are worked.

To finish the Cowl, a section of finishing triangles is worked.

· Unless otherwise noted, slip all sl sts as if to purl.
