Simple Cowl

Lion Brand« Vanna's Choice®

GAUGE:

10 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st worked in the rnd (k every rnd) with 2 strands of yarn held tog. 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.

Reviewed by amymcclellan27 on 2012-12-21 **
With the yarns they use and with the measuring they used this barely fit over my head, and I have a small head. I'd strongly suggest increasing the pattern if you're using the yarn they use.
