GAUGE:

12 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st worked in the rnd (k every rnd) with 2 strands of yarn held tog.

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.

Port Chester Cowl Reviewed by Barbara J McFarland on 2012-01-16 ****
I thought this looked very similar to the Lyndhurst Cowl. They are, the difference being length and circumference. This pattern is longer in both. I live in So. California so I am going to use the Lyndhurst pattern. This one looks warmer and because of its circumference you can probably wear it as a hooded cowl more easily.
Thank LB for providing both.
