Designed in the pattern tradition of the colorful tents and banners of medieval knights, this equally colorful cowl is knitted in the round from the bottom up. The color patterning is deceptively simple…one round of two stitches on one color and three of the next, followed by a second round of four stitches on one color and one of the next. The changes of color create the pattern.

Finished size: 10 in x 34 in (25.4 cm x 86.36 cm)

Gauge: 4 in (10.16 cm) = 27 sts and 30 rnds
Note: Obtaining both stitch and row gauge is ideal; however, if you have to make a choice, try to get row gauge. Stitch gauge can be achieved through blocking if you are not too far off. Also, try using wooden needles which have more grip on the yarn.
