Assembly

Step 1: Wet block cowl to correct any curling or uneven edges by pinning it down, saturating it with water and allowing it to dry completely before moving on to the next step.

Step 2: Lay cowl flat with right side facing up. Fold bottom edge to top edge so the wrong side is showing. Seam the two ends together using a yarn needle.

Step 3: Weave in your ends.
