Step 1
Project Note: The number of Skeins needed to complete this project is 2 - Lion Brand® Touch of Alpaca® Bonus Bundle Yarn – Dusty Blue

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS:
   -  Finished Circumference: About 28" (71 cm)
   -  Finished Height: About 14" (35.5 cm)
 
GAUGE: 20 sts = about 4" (20 cm) in Garter st (knit every st on every row). Please be sure to check your gauge.
 
STITCH EXPLANATIONS:
   -  kfb (knit in front and back) Knit next st without removing it from left hand needle, then k through back of same st – 1 st increased.
   -  skp (slip 1, knit 1, pass slip st over) Slip 1 as if to knit, knit 1, pass slip stitch over knit stitch – 1 st decreased.
   -  Yo (yarn over).
 
An increase that also creates a small decorative hole (eyelet) in the fabric, worked as follows:
1. Bring yarn to front, between the needles.
2. Take yarn to back, over the right hand needle. This creates the new st. You are now ready to proceed with the next st as instructed.
 
NOTES:
1. Cowl is worked in one piece and then sewn together to make a ring.
2. First half of Cowl is worked in an easy stitch pattern and second half is in Garter st (knit every st on every row).
3. Hat is worked in one piece and then sewn together.
4. Top of Hat is shaped with decreases, then a pom-pom is tied on.
