Pattern notes

Pattern is written in UK terms
The texture in this cosy is created by working a double crochet into each treble crochet from the previous row and a treble crochet into each double crochet.

The cosy is worked in two pieces, which are then joined along the sides and bottom. The collar is then worked in rounds along the top of the cosy.
