The eyelet lace pattern in this chunky cowl gives it a very romantic flare.

Chenille Lace Cowl

Lion Brand® Chenille


8 sts + 13 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in 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


ssk (slip, slip, knit) Slip next 2 sts as if to knit, one at a time, to right needle; insert left needle into fronts of these 2 sts and knit them tog - 1 st decreased.
Yo (yarn over)
An increase that also creates a small decorative hole (eyelet) in the fabric, worked as follows:
1. Bring yarn to front, between the needles.
2. Take yarn to back, over the right needle. This creates the new st. You are now ready to proceed with the next st as instructed.


1. Cowl is worked back and forth in rows in a lace pattern. Ends are sewn together to create the Cowl.
2. Cowl can be made by following the written instructions or by reading the Chart. Read Chart from right to left on RS rows and from left to right on WS rows.

Chenille Lace Cowl Reviewed by Louise Gray on 2015-01-19 *****
I'm not sure what the first comment was about. I've made this Cowl lots of times and the pattern works out just fine as instructed.
