To Make Up

Block the cosy, pinning it to 42 (44, 47) cms in length and 11.5 cms in width.
Once it is dry, measure 16.5 cms from the bind off edge and fold with the wrong side facing. Stitch up each side of the cosy, staying as close to the edge as possible.
Turn the right side out and sew a button in place.
