Place a marker anywhere on one edge of Cowl. Place a 2nd marker on the same edge about 12" from the first marker. Sew one short edge of Wrap to WS of Cowl, gathering the edge of the wrap to fit the 12" edge of the cowl between the markers. Remove markers.
Note: A helper will make the next part of finishing easier. Try on Cowl, with Wrap in front. Wrap the other end of the Wrap around to your back, adjusting to fit, and pin to edge of Cowl. Take off Cowl and sew end.
