Additional Information

Description

SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Red Heart® With Love®: 1 skein, Beachy
  • Susan Bates® Knitting Needles: 5.5mm [US 9]
  • Yarn needle
  • Tape measure
  • Scissors

    • GAUGE: 15 sts = 4" (10 cm); 20 rows = 4" (10 cm) in pattern. CHECK YOUR GAUGE. Use any size needles to obtain the gauge.

    • NOTES:
    • Piece is worked back and forth in rows then short edges are sewn together to form cowl.
    • Gauge is not critical. It can be a bit difficult to exactly measure gauge given the nature of the double yarn over stitches.

    • Cowl measures 12" (30.5 cm) wide and 24" (61 cm) around.

    • DIRECTIONS:

    • Cast on 45 sts.
    • Rows 1–6: Knit.
    • Row 7 (right side): K2, [yarn over] twice, *k1, [yarn over] twice; repeat from * to last 2 sts, k2.
    • Row 8 (wrong side): K2, drop the next 2 yarn overs from the left needle, *k1, drop the next 2 yarn overs from the left needle; repeat from * to last 2 sts, k2.
    • Repeat Rows 1–8 until piece measures about 24" (61 cm), ending with a Row 8.
    • Bind off all sts as if to knit.

    • FINISHING
    • Sew short ends together. Weave in ends.

    • ABBREVIATIONS:
    • k = knit
    • st(s) = sttich(es)
    • * = repeat whatever follows the * as indicated
