Guest: Linda Pratt of Westminster fibers talks with Kathy about SMC Yarns. SMC is a shortened version of the Schachenmayr brand. The brand has been given a huge face-lift and rejuvenation. SMC Select is a little higher end, fashion-focused line. Several of the Gedifra yarns have been absorbed into SMC Select.

CAL with Kirsten
After the crochet chain, you’ll work the main body of the cowl. Round 4 and 5 you work into the chain, not the chain space. You should have a loose gauge here, so you shouldn’t have to force the hook.
Learn from us and make sure you check your gauge! A couple double crochets off over four inches makes a huge difference in the finished size. Make sure you’re working nice and loose!
