Vintage Cowl

Lion Brand® Chenille


6 1/2 half double crochet = 4 in. (10 cm). 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


1. Cowl is worked in joined rounds with the RS always facing. At the end of each round, join last stitch with a slip stitch in the first stitch.
2. If you find it difficult to join the beginning chain into a ring without twisting, Round 1 can be worked as a row, then joined into a round, as follows: Leaving a long beginning tail, chain 40, half double crochet in 3rd chain from hook (beginning chain counts as first stitch) and in each chain across; join with slip stitch in top of beginning chain to form a ring. Use beginning tail to sew gap at base of first row closed. Proceed to Round 2.

Chain 39. Being careful not to twist the chain, join with slip stitch in first chain to form a ring.
Round 1: Chain 2 (counts as first stitch), half double crochet in each chain around; join with slip stitch in top of beginning chain - 39 stitches.
Round 2: Chain 2 (counts as first stitch), half double crochet in each stitch around; join with slip stitch in top of beginning chain.
Repeat last round until piece measures about 10 in. (25.5 cm) from beginning. Fasten off.

Weave in ends.

Vintage Cowl Reviewed by Maxi McCauley on 2014-08-11 ****
I am not quite done and I am starting my second ball of yarn. So I am not sure if I should have used a smaller needle or not. I tend to stitch tight. I tried the cowl on and I do really like it. Just need to keep crocheting to reach the measurements indicated or close to it.
