11 dc = 4 in. (10 cm). 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.
Row 1: Dc in 4th ch from hook and in each ch across.
Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as first dc here and throughout), turn. Working in front loops only, dc in each st across.
Row 3: Ch 3, turn. Working in back loops only, dc in each st across.
Repeat Rows 2 and 3 until piece measures about 50 in. (127 cm) from beginning.
Fasten off, leaving a long tail to seam ends.
Seam ends to make a loop. Weave in ends.

Simplicity Cowl Reviewed by Linda Sykes on 2014-12-22
Easy enough pattern and the yarn is attractive but hard to work with and very annoying. Yarn quality is not great - would never give this cowl as a gift because of the imperfections with the yarn. Won't use it again!
