Knit Ridged Cowl

Lion Brand® Superwash Merino Cashmere


14 sts + 18 rnds = 4 in. [10 cm] over Ridged pattern.
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

Note: Cowl is worked in one piece, in the round.
Cast on 82 (89) 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.
Rnds 1-4: Purl.
Rnds 5-8: Knit.
Rep Rnds 1-8 until piece measures about 21 in. (54 cm), end with a Rnd 4. Bind off.

Weave in ends.

Knit Ridged Cowl Reviewed by Kristen Nelson on 2012-11-12 *****
i absolutely adore this pattern. it was my first "in the round" project and went over exactly how it should have. i gave this to my greandmother as a gift last christmas and she ahs commissioned me to make one for her sister :) i used a baby yarn with some sheen (not LB *eek*) and held two strands together. i also used size 10 needles and the result was stunning. pardon my unattractive outfit in the picture, i didn't realize i would end up posting it here! :)
