GAUGE:
20 sts + 26 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.

STITCH EXPLANATION:
TECHNIQUE EXPLANATION Cable Cast On Make a slip knot on left needle.

Knit 1 st through slip knot, but do not drop slip knot from left needle; transfer new st from right needle to left needle – 2 sts on left needle.

*Insert right needle between first 2 sts on left needle; wrap yarn and pull through (as if knitting a st); transfer new st to left needle.

Rep from * until all sts have been cast on.

NOTES:
1.

Cowl is worked in one piece in the rnd.

2.

When you see ‘– 12 sts’ in the instructions, this lets you know how many sts you will have at the end of that specific rnd.
