The Art Of The Cowl

Lion Brand« LB Collection« Superwash Merino - LB Collection« Cashmere

GAUGE:

18 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st with 1 strand each of A and D held together. 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.

The Art Of The Cowl Reviewed by Patricia Norris on 2014-03-19 *****
I made this using the suggested yarns and colors and it is gorgeous and so very soft. Since I live in Florida I don't get as much chance to wear it as I would like, but when I do wear it I get many compliments. the photo doesn't do it justice.
