TO MAKE UP

Join Hood to Cowl as fol­lows:

Align seam of Cowl and back seam of Hood. Pin to­gether bottom edge of Hood with top edge of Cowl RS to­gether. There will be a sec­tion of Cowl mea­sur­ing ap­prox 8cm at the front where there is a ‘gap’ be­tween the 2 edges of the Hood. Whip stitch Hood to Cowl along edge. Fas­ten off and weave in ends.

Turn Hood RS out.

HOOD EDGING

Join Rock with ss to bottom cor­ner of Hood (where Hood meets Cowl), ss loosely into each st around edge of Hood, then dc evenly along short area of Cowl sec­tion at the front be­tween the 2 Hood edges.

Fas­ten off and weave in ends.

COWL EDGING

With RS fac­ing and us­ing Rock, dc evenly around bottom edge of Cowl.

TAS­SELS LARGE TAS­SEL HOOD BACK MAKE 1

Tie an­other piece of Rock around all strands ap­prox 4cm from top to se­cure. Trim Tas­sel to level off ends. Sew Tas­sel to Hood on top rear cor­ner, see im­age for de­tails.

Plait these lengths of Rock to­gether to the length you wish to make the hang­ing plait. Tie an­other piece of Rock around all Tas­sel strands ap­prox 3cm from top. At­tach plait to the bottom edge of Hood as pic­tured, one on each side.
