Project Instructions

  • 1
    Use a gauge of 11 sts + 16 rows (about 4 inch) over Chart pattern to knit a cowl that measures 37 inch in Finished Circumference and about 10 inch in Finished Height. Be sure to check your gauge. 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. If it takes you less stitches to make a 4 inch square, try using a smaller size needle or hook; if it takes you more stitches, try a larger size needle or hook.
