A Crochet-A-Long… You decide the project!!!!

Happy November!  I have been tossing around the idea of having a Crochet-A-Long starting in January 2014…  Since I am like all of you yarnies… I can’t decide what it will be… I always have tons of work in progress projects!  So what better than leave it up to Viewer Choice!!!!  You all were so supportive during the voting for the final Amazing Grace Pattern poll… I thought…hmmmm… Lets do another poll!!!!

 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!!!
