Gauge

16 sts and 32 rows = 4 inches/10cm in garter st. To save time, take time to check gauge.

Spe­cial Ab­bre­vi­a­tion

Wrap and Turn (W&T): Sl next st pwise to RH nee­dle. Bring yarn be­tween nee­dles to op­po­site side of fab­ric, then sl same st back to LH nee­dle. Turn, leav­ing rem sts un­worked, then beg work­ing back in the other di­rec­tion. Note: There is no need to hide wraps on sub­se­quent rows.

Pat­tern Notes

The cowl is worked flat in garter st, be­gin­ning with a cen­ter rec­tan­gle. Stitches are picked up along the sides of this and sub­se­quent rec­tan­gles at a rate of 1 stitch for each ridge to cre­ate ad­di­tional sec­tions; ar­rows in the di­a­gram in­di­cate the di­rec­tion of knit­ting. The fi­nal sec­tions are shaped with short rows to cre­ate ad­di­tional width at the lower edge.
