Attaching the Hood

 With yarn and yarn needle:  Working along the bottom edge of the hood and  the top of the Cowls inside edge (The back loops of the Rev Sc edging of Cowl) sew the hood into place.  You will be sewing the  hood base to a little more than half of the Cowl. Leaving approximately 3/8 of the Cowl open.  Finish off and enjoy!!!
