9 sts= 4” in stockinette stitch in Handspun Yarn

Perfect gauge is not crucial for this project and the gauge of the handspun can be a little larger than the main color yarn, which will result in the handspun circles popping out more.

Be aware of your tension when you are slipping stitches, make sure the yarn behind the slipped stitches is loose, otherwise your cowl will pull inward.

SL2- slip the next 2 stitches from the left hand needle to the right hand needle purlwise with your working yarn in back.
