SKILL LEVEL:  Easy + (Level 3)

CORRECTIONS: (applied Dec 18, 2012)
On Rows 3 and 9 of the Pod Stitch pattern, a k5tog is called for. The k5tog decreases 4 sts and looks quite nice in this design.
If you find it difficult to work this decrease, there are a couple of alternatives that you can work in place of the k5tog:
  • Slip 2 sts together, as if to knit, from left needle to right needle, k next 3 sts together, pass the 2 slipped sts over the k3tog.
  • Insert a crochet hook through the 5 sts on the left needle, then use the hook to pull the yarn through the sts.

The above is only a summary of corrections; the corrected pattern text is below (if free) or shipped upon completion of order (if purchased)

Pod Stitch Cowl

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

12.5 sts = about 4 in. (10 cm) in Pod Stitch.
EXACT GAUGE IS NOT ESSENTIAL FOR THIS PROJECT.

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

STITCH EXPLANATION:

M1P (make 1 st as if to purl) An increase worked by lifting the horizontal thread lying between the needles and placing it onto the left needle. Purl this new stitch through the back loop - 1 st increased.
(p1, k1, p1) in next stPurl in next st but do not remove st from needle. Take yarn to back between needles, knit the same st, but do not remove st from needle. Bring yarn to front between needles, purl the same st and remove st from needle - 2 sts increased.

Pod Stitch (multiple of 8 sts)
Rnds 1 and 2:
*P5, k1, p1, k1; rep from * to end of rnd.
Rnd 3: *K5tog, k1, M1P, (p1, k1, p1) in next st, M1P, k1; rep from * to end of rnd.
Rnds 4-8: *P1, k1, p5, k1; rep from * to end of rnd.
Rnd 9: *M1P, (p1, k1, p1) in next st, M1P, k1, k5tog, k1; rep from * to end of rnd.
Rnds 10-12: Rep Rnd 1.
Rep Rnds 1-12 for Pod Stitch.

NOTES:

On Rows 3 and 9 of the Pod Stitch pattern, a k5tog is called for. The k5tog decreases 4 sts and looks quite nice in this design.
If you find it difficult to work this decrease, there are a couple of alternatives that you can work in place of the k5tog:

  • Slip 2 sts together, as if to knit, from left needle to right needle, k next 3 sts together, pass the 2 slipped sts over the k3tog.
  • Insert a crochet hook through the 5 sts on the left needle, then use the hook to pull the yarn through the sts.

COWL
Cast on 80 sts. Place marker for beg of rnd. Join by working the first st on left hand needle with the working yarn from the right hand needle and being careful not to twist sts.
Work Rows 1-12 of Pod Stitch twice (24 rows total), then work Rows 1-10 once more - piece should measure about 10 1/2 in. (27 cm) from beg.
Bind off.

FINISHING
Weave in ends.

This is a nice pattern to follow however the finished product is extremely bulky.
