Quick Cushy Hat And Cowl Set

Lion Brand® Homespun®Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

8 sts (4 dc and 4 ch-1 sps) + 6 rnds = about 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

STITCH EXPLANATION:

dc2tog-over-3 (dc 2 together worked over 3 sts)Yarn over, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops, skip next ch-1 sp, yarn over, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook - 2 sts decreased.

TECHNIQUE EXPLANATION
Surface Slip Stitch

1. Make a slip knot, but do not place it on hook.
2. Insert hook from RS to WS through crochet fabric.
3. Place the slip knot on hook and draw loop to RS (keep beg tail and working yarn on WS).
4. *Insert hook from RS to WS through fabric a short distance from last insertion location, yarn over, draw loop through fabric and through loop on hook (surface sl st made); rep from * inserting hook, as desired, to create surface pattern.
5. Fasten off.
Note: To end a section of surface sl sts. Remove hook from loop and take hook to WS. Insert hook from WS to RS, place loop on hook, draw loop through to WS. Cut yarn. Draw tail through final loop and pull tight.

NOTES:

1. Hat and Cowl are worked in joined rnds with RS facing at all times. Do not turn at end of rnds.
2. First rows of Hat and cowl are worked then joined into a rnd. This makes it easier to avoid twisting the sts. Use beg yarn tail to sew gap between first and last st of first row together.
3. When you see '-12 sts' in the instructions, this lets you know how many sts you will have at the end of that specific row or rnd.

Quick Cushy Hat And Cowl Set Reviewed by Ellie Binder on 2014-05-21 *****
I just finished the cowl. I read the pattern and then forgot to take it with me on a trip, so mine isn't exactly the same, I put the dc into the chain spaces, instead of the dc. I also used regular homespun, not the thick and quick, but it matches my new winter coat, and I am excited to have it! Too bad the weather changed this week into spring!
