15 sts + 24 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm) over pattern.

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


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.
Yo (yarn over)
An increase that also creates a small decorative hole (eyelet) in the fabric, worked as follows:
1. Bring yarn to front, between the needles.
2. Take yarn to back, over the right needle. This creates the new st. You are now ready to proceed with the next st as instructed.

With circular needle, cast on 123 sts. Place marker for beg of rnd. Join by working the first st on the left hand needle with the working yarn from the right hand needle and being careful not to twist sts.
Rnd 1: *Yo, ssk, k1; rep from * around.
Rep Rnd 1 until piece measures about 5 1/2 in. (14 cm) from beginning.
Bind off.

Weave in ends.

Textured Cowl Reviewed by Helen Ferrigno on 2015-10-01 *****
This cowl works up beautifully in the variegated colors of Landscape yarn. I made sets of the cowl and the Hip Slouch Hat (L40743B) using a variegated for one and a solid for the other.


a. a 24" circular needle is just right
b. the pattern starts with a YO
c. use a round stitch marker on the needle to mark the beginning (the pattern shifts)
d. bind off in purl stitch. This makes the cowl reversible
e. bind off 123 stitches (the YO is a stitch)
