    • DIRECTIONS:

    • Cowl is worked in one piece, back and forth in rows on a circular needle.
    • Cowl begins with a Garter stitch (k every row) border, then continues in bands of Stained Glass pattern alternating with bands of Garter stitch.
    • The Cowl is shaped by working decreases.
    • When working the Stained Glass pattern, Rows 1 and 2 are both worked on the RS, Rows 3 and 4 are both worked on the WS. At the end of Rows 1 and 3, don’t turn work - simply slide the stitches to the other end of the needle. At the end of Rows 2 and 4 turn your work as usual.
    • Edgings are worked onto the opening edges of the Cowl, then the zipper is sewed in place.

    • COWL
    • With A, cast on 180 (198) sts.
    • Lower Border
    • Working back and forth in rows on the circular needle, work in Garter st (k every row) for 10 rows.

    • First Stained Glass Band
    • Join B, but do not cut A.
    • Beg with Row 1 of pattern, work in Stained Glass pattern for 36 rows.
    • Cut B.

    • First Garter St Band
    • With A, work in Garter st for 6 rows.
    • Decrease Row (RS): *K7, k2tog; rep from * to end of row – there will be 160 (176) sts at the end of this row.
    • Next Row: Knit.

    • Second Stained Glass Band
    • Work same as first Stained Glass band.

    • Second Garter St Band
    • With A, work in Garter st for 6 rows.
    • Decrease Row (RS): *K6, k2tog; rep from * to end of row – 140 (154) sts.
    • Next Row: Knit.

    • Work in Garter st for 3 rows, then bind off.
    • Before binding off, measure edge of Cowl against the length of your zipper – Cowl should be about 1" (2.5 cm) longer than your zipper. If Cowl at this point is shorter than your zipper, knit another row or two. If the Cowl is a bit longer than the zipper, no worries! Center the zipper along the opening edges of the Cowl, leaving a bit more of the Cowl at the top and the lower edge extending beyond the zipper.

    • With sewing needle and thread, baste zipper to WS of opening edges of Cowl.
    • When you are happy with the placement of the zipper, with sewing needle and thread sew zipper tapes neatly to WS of Cowl. The best way to sew in the zipper is with a backstitch close to the zipper teeth and a whip stitch to sew the outside edge of the zipper tape to the WS of the Cowl.
