  4. I love this pattern when working in the round if you knit one at the start and end with a knit one you have three knit stitches in a row which shows a lot.... am I not understanding the pattern. thanks

  5. It does have 3 knit stitches in a row, but I considered that the back. If you do not like this, you could change the stitch count. See if that helps?

    1. Hello... I finally got back to the cowl... my stitches are growing... aren't I suppose to have the same amount of stitches I started with which was 122...what do you mean by 4st+2 at the bottom of the chart.thanks for your help...DK

  7. you should have the same amount of stitches, it should not grow, 4st + 2 tells you that the repeat is a multiple of 4 stitches, with a stitch on either end, so if you wanted to make it a different size, you would need to keep this in mind. With each pattern repeat, you should add 2 stitches (as a yarn over) and decrease 2 stitches with slip, knit 2 together, pass slip stitch over. I hope this helps?
