Modular Cowl

Lion Brand® Unique


13 sts + 21 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter st (k 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 made up of 16 Triangles worked in modular fashion. Triangle 1 is worked first and sts for all following Triangles are picked up along edge of previous Triangle.
2. Cast-on edge of Triangle 1 is sewed to side edge of Triangle 16 to make Cowl, then sts for the edging are picked up around each long edge.

Triangle 1

Cast on 20 sts.
Knit 1 row.
Next Row (RS): K to last 3 sts, k2tog, p1.
Rep last 2 rows until 3 sts remain.
Next Row: K3tog. Cut yarn.

Triangle 2
From RS, and beg at the narrowest end of Triangle 1, pick up and k 25 sts evenly spaced along diagonal edge of Triangle 1.
Work same as for Triangle 1.

Triangle 3
From RS, pick up and k 20 sts evenly spaced along short edge of Triangle 2.
Work same as for Triangle 1.

Triangles 4-16
Rep Triangles 2 and 3 six more times, then rep Triangle 2 once more.

Sew cast-on edge of Triangle 1 to short edge of Triangle 16 to make Cowl.
From RS with circular needle, pick up and k 160 sts evenly spaced around one long edge of Cowl (20 sts along each Triangle). Place marker for beg of rnd and join by working the first st on the left hand needle with the working yarn from the right hand needle.
Purl 1 rnd, knit 1 rnd, purl 1 rnd. Bind off as if to knit.
Rep around opposite edge of Cowl.
Weave in ends.
