Level 3 Knit Cowl

Lion Brand« Lion's Pride« Woolspun«


15 sts + 20 rnds = about 4 in. (10 cm) over Rnds 1-5 of Step 1.

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


Cowl is worked in one piece in the round on a circular needle in a simple texture and cable pattern.

Cast on 99 sts. 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.

Rnds 1 and 3: *Knit 1, (purl 1, knit 1) twice, knit 6; rep from * to end of rnd.
Rnds 2 and 4: *Purl 1, (knit 1, purl 1) twice, knit 6; rep from * to end of rnd.
Rnd 5: Rep Rnd 1.

Rnd 6 (Cable Rnd):
*Purl 1, (knit 1, purl 1) twice, (slip 3 sts to cable needle and hold in front, knit next 3 sts, then knit 3 from cable needle) for cable; rep from * to end of rnd.
Rnds 7-12: Rep Rnds 1-6.
Rnds 13-20: Rep Rnds 1-4 twice.
Rnds 21-23: Rep Rnds 1-3.
Rnd 24: Rep Rnd 6.
Rnds 25-30: Rep Rnds 1-6.
Rnds 31-35: Rep Rnds 1-5.

Level 3 Knit Cowl Reviewed by jackie Ramos on 2014-09-11 *****
I doubled the recipe! Used Chunky baby alpaca, 10.5 round needles. finished product measures 26 " circ. and 11" high. Turned out absolutely Gorgeous!! Easy seed stitch and beginner cable pattern. Lovely drape because of the Alpaca!
