  • 14 inches tall
  • 28 inch circumference

Instructions for cowl (using the fur and 16mm hook):

Ch 12

Row 1: In the 4th chain from the hook, work a (dc, ch 1). *Skip a chain then work (dc, ch 1) in the next ch.  Repeat from * across.

Row 2: Ch 4 and turn (counts as a dc, ch 1).  Work a (dc, ch 1) in the first space and in each space across.

Repeat row 2 until piece is about 28 inches from starting edge leaving a long tail for seaming.  Sandwich two edges together and work a whip stitch to seam together using either a large tapestry needle or even your fingers.  Weave in any ends that remain.

Instructions for drawstring (using the Super Saver and J hook):

To make the drawstring, make a chain about SSSS inches long and leave the tails at either end for attaching the hearts later.  Set aside and proceed below to make hearts.

To make two hearts (using the Super Saver and J hook):

Chain 4 and join with a slip stitch in the furthest ch from the hook to form a ring.

Round 1 (work all stitches into the ring): dc, tr, dc, sl st, dc, tr, dc, sc, sc, sc, tr, sc, sc, sc, join to close heart with a slip stitch and fasten off.

Before you sew the hearts, weave the drawstring through the top edge of the cowl.  Using the tails from the drawstring, sew a heart to each drawstring end.  Weave in any ends that remain.
