Patons Classic Wool Roving Strandtastic Cowl

Searching for a one-of-a-kind cowl? Well, look no further. The chic Patons Classic Wool Roving Strandtastic Cowl flawlessly matches any outfit, dressy or casual. It’'s so glamorous, you should expect to be confused with a celebrity if you'’re out and about in this show-stopping piece!

Tip: Before starting project, pick four colors of Patons Classic Wool Roving and/or other 100 g/3.5 oz. yarn. Assign one color the abbreviation MC, and each of the other colors a letter from A to C. Use these letters to correspond with the MC and A, B, and C in this project.

Use a gauge of 15 sts and 20 rows (4") with larger needles in stocking st to knit a cowl that measures approximately 12-1/2" deep by 26" around. Be sure to check your gauge. If it takes you fewer stitches to match the gauge, try using a smaller size needle; if it takes you more stitches, try a larger size needle.
