9 sts + 13 rnds = about 4 in. (10 cm) in rev St st worked in rnds (p 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
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.
pfb (purl into front and back) Purl next st without removing it from left needle, then p through back of same st – 1 st increased.
1. Beginning of Cowl is worked back and forth in rows in rev St st (p on RS, k on WS) working increased sts to make a triangle.
2. Sts are then joined and Cowl is worked in rev St st worked in rnds (p every rnd).
Cast on 4 sts.
Row 1 (WS): Kfb, k1, kfb, k1 – 6 sts at the end of this row.
Row 2: Pfb, p3, pfb, p1 – 8 sts.
Row 3: Kfb, k to last 2 sts, kfb, k1 – 10 sts.
Row 4: Pfb, p to last 2 sts, pfb, p1 – 12 sts.
Rep Rows 3 and 4 until you have a total of 80 sts.
Next Row: Repeat Row 3 – 82 sts.
Joining Row (RS) Purl to the end of the row.
Place marker for beginning 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.
