Three Color Cowl

Lion Brand« Vanna's Choice®

GAUGE:

16 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st worked in the rnd (k every rnd). 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.

Making a Gauge Swatch

NOTES:

1. Cowl is worked in St st in the rnd (k every rnd).
2. Follow all Charts from right to left on every rnd, working 12-st rep shown on each Chart a total of 9 times around.

COWL
With A, cast on 108 sts.
Place marker for beginning of rnd. Join by working the first st on left hand needle with the working yarn from the right hand needle, being careful not to twist sts.
Work in St st worked in the rnd (k every rnd) for 1 1/2 in. (4 cm). This portion of piece will be turned to the WS after piece is knitted and hemmed in place.

Chart 1
Continuing in St st, work 12-st rep of Rnd 1, Chart 1 around.
Continue in St st, following Chart 1, until Rnd 31 of Chart 1 has been completed.

Chart 2
Work 12-st rep of Rnd 1, Chart 2 around.
Continue in St st, following Chart 2, until Rnd 28 of Chart 2 has been completed.

Chart 3
Work 12-st rep of Rnd 1, Chart 3 around.
Continue in St st, following Chart 2, until Rnd 23 of Chart 3 has been completed.
With C, work in St st for 1 1/2 in. (4 cm) for hem.
Bind off.

FINISHING
Fold 1 1/2 in. (4 cm) at cast on edge to wrong side of work and sew in place with matching yarn. Repeat along bound off edge of Cowl.
Weave in ends.

Three Color Cowl Reviewed by Stephanie Weber on 2012-12-31 *****
I made this cowl in heathered colours and gave them to my sons. In the right colours, the pattern makes a good "camo" effect and they really liked them. Pattern was easy, well written, and the cowl DOES fit as pictured, unlike most of them.
