Diamond Cowl

Lion Brand® Vanna's Choice®


18 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


K2, p2 Rib (worked in the rnd, multiple of 4 sts)
Rnd 1:
*K2, p2, rep from* around.
Rep Rnd 1 for K2, p2 Rib worked in the rnd.


1. Cowl is worked in the rnd, so Charts 1, 2, and 3 should be read from right to left on every rnd.
2. Carry unused color(s) across WS of work.

With A, cast on 240 sts. Place marker for beg of rnd. Join, being careful not to twist sts.
Work in K2, p2 Rib worked in the rnd for 1 in. (2.5 cm).
Work Charts
Change to St st worked in the rnd (k every rnd) and work 8-st rep of Rnd 1, Chart 1 around.
Continue to work in St st following Chart 1 until Rnd 21 has been completed.

Continuing in St st, follow Chart 2 to work Rnds 21-49 and Chart 3 to work Rnds 50-69.

With A, work in K2, p2 Rib worked in the rnd for 1 in. (2.5 cm).
Bind off.
