Interlocking Cowl

Lion Brand® Unique

GAUGE:

18 sts + 15 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm) in K2, p2 rib.

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:

kfb (knit in front and back) Knit next st without removing it from left needle, then k through back of same st - 1 st increased.
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.

PATTERN STITCH
K2, p2 Rib (multiple of 4 sts + 2)
Row 1:
K2, *p2, k2; rep from * to end of row.
Row 2: K the knit sts and p the purl sts.
Rep Row 2 for K2, p2 rib.

NOTES:

1. Cowl is worked in one piece and shaped with increase and decrease sections.
2. Sts are divided and worked separately to create the interlocking sections.
3. End with a WS row means that the last row you work should be a WS row, and the next row that you are ready to work will be a RS row.
4. 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.

Interlocking Cowl Reviewed by Joan McCracken on 2014-04-07 ****
Fun to knit, but WOW, the row to connect the two ends was impossible to figure out the way the pattern explained it....so just had to wing it . It would have been helpful if there had been a diagram to show exactly how to connect the two ends.....
