1Use a gauge of 6 sts + 5 rows (about 4 inch) in pattern to crochet a cowl that measures about 37 inch in Finished Circumference and about 9 inch in Finished Height. Be sure you 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 match the gauge, try using a smaller size needle or hook; if it takes you more stitches, try a larger size needle or hook.
