Graceful Cowl

Lion Brand® LB Collection® Silk

GAUGE:

20 sts + 26 rnds = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st worked in the rnd (k every rnd).

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:

TECHNIQUE EXPLANATION
Cable Cast On Make a slip knot on left needle. Knit 1 st through slip knot, but do not drop slip knot from left needle; transfer new st from right needle to left needle – 2 sts on left needle. *Insert right needle between first 2 sts on left needle; wrap yarn and pull through (as if knitting a st); transfer new st to left needle. Rep from * until all sts have been cast on.

NOTES:

1.  Cowl is worked in one piece in the rnd.
2.  When you see ‘– 12 sts’ in the instructions, this lets you know how many sts you will have at the end of that specific rnd.


COWL
With shorter circular needle, cast on 84 sts.
Join, place marker for beg of rnd.
Work in St st worked in the rnd (k every rnd) for 10 rnds.
Note: Markers you place on the next rnd should be a different color than the beg of rnd marker. Change to longer circular needle when sts have been sufficiently increased.

Inc Rnd: *K to marked st, (k1, p1, k1) all in marked st, move marker to center st of these last 3; rep from * around - 126 sts; 5 sts between each marked st.

Rep last 6 rnds 3 more times - 252 sts on last rnd worked.
Continue as established, rep Inc Rnd every 8th rnd twice - 336 sts when all increases have been completed.
Rep Inc Rnd - 378 sts at end of this rnd.
P one rnd.
