GAUGE:
24 sts + 29 rnds = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st worked in the rnd (k every rnd). 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 stranded colorwork.

Carry color not in use across WS of work.

2.

When changing color, pick up new color from under old color to twist yarns.

3.

Colorwork can be worked from written instructions or by following the chart.

When following chart, work in St st worked in the rnd (k every rnd) and read all rnds on chart from right to left.
