NOTES

  1. Cowl is worked in one piece in the rnd beg at lower edge.
  2. If you find it difficult to join the beg ch into a ring without twisting the ch, Rnd 1 can be worked as a row then joined into a rnd, as follows: Leaving a long beg tail, ch 133, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across; join with sl st in first sc – you will have 132 sc at the end of this row/rnd. Use beg tail to sew gap at base of first row closed. Proceed to Rnd 2.
