    FINISHING:
    Weave in ends. 
    Designer note
    After you finish your Cowl and have weaved the ends, I recommend you block it. This will give more stitch definition to your work. Soak the Cowl in cold water with a gentle wool wash for about 15 min. With a towel, squeeze the excess moisture and lay flat to dry.
