10/1/2020 - Updated layout. The original pattern was correct, but we took the opportunity to change the edging for the cowl from rolled to ribbed, and made the chart the same for both the cowl and the hat.
10/28/2020 - Whoops. Instructions for edging at top of cowl should also be ribbed, not rolled, like bottom.
