Two Tone Striped Cowl

Lion Brand® Romance®


12 sts + 14 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter st (knit every row).

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 as a long strip, then ends are sewed together to make a ring.
2. When changing color, do not cut old color. Carry unused color along side edge of piece.

With A, cast on 21 sts.
With A, knit 4 rows.
With B, knit 4 rows.
With A, knit 2 rows.
With B, knit 2 rows.
Repeat last 12 rows 4 more times.
Last 4 Rows: With A, knit 2 rows; with B, knit 2 rows.
Bind off.

FINISHING Sew cast on and bound off ends together to make Cowl.

Two Tone Striped Cowl on 2013-12-19 ***
Warning, this pattern's two skeins of yarn is NOT enough. I currently am taking my cowl apart and adding another skein of champagne. It will be heavy on the tan shade (I like that shade best) but at least it will be long enough. You might want to take a scarf and wrap it around your own neck to see how long you would prefer the cowl to be. I will make mine about 4 inches longer.
