I am a new knitter and I want to try this, however the pattern talks about the stitches but does not say how many stitches to cast on and about the edge? Am I missing something?

marni, the cast on is 130 stitches. The 1st link takes you to the page that gives you the gauge and explains the stitch pattern. Under that is a picture of the cowl, and beneath that is an arrow that says "Next Step". The arrow takes you to the actual pattern with the cast on etc. It is a bit of a treasure hunt to get there, but hopefully worth it at the end.

SSK = slip the next two stitches as if to knit them to the right hand needle (this twists them) then move them back to the left needle but don't untwist them. Knit both slipped stitches together. This makes a right leaning decrease.

I am confused. When I click for directions for the Red Royalty Cowl, I get directions for the Comfy Cozy Cowl. Is it the same or is there a different pattern for it? Marjorie Hill

Hi Mhill. No difference in the pattern. It has two different names, but it is one in the same pattern.

I tried to knit this pattern this past weekend and had to rip it out three times. Has anyone else had this problem? I have been knitting for 50 years and I could not figure out what was wrong.

I am not understanding the SSK stitch. Can anyone help me. I love the pattern.

SSK stitch is slip two stitches one at a time and return them back to the left hand needle and knit through the back together. I'm old school and have been knitting a long time, so I just use knit two together through the back of the loop-it just determines which way your decrease lays and this works the same, there was no need to change it.
