Now that you're getting older,
And the nights are getting colder,
Nothing could be neater,
Than this little Peter Heater

  10. Single crochet 2 sts tog around top. Join. Chain 4, * dc, ch 1, * around.
  11. Join & end off. Make a chain 18 inches long. thread it through the dc's & tie in front.

Ties

Short-Cinch Tie: Make a chain 18inches long, sc back on the chain. Weave tie around the double crochet spaces, from the middle of the back of the sack, to the middle front of the Main Bit.

Long Tie (to go around the hips): Make a chain of 200. Sc back on the chain. Weave the same way as the Short-Cinch Tie.

NOTE! Please read! If the guy really wants to wear one, do the following:

Make 2 of the long ties, but one with 300 sts (groan). With a yarn needle, weave the tie through the bottom of the sack in the back part that would be next to the body, then from the middle of the sack to the other side with one half of the tie & do the same with the other half, but in the opposite direction. This will give "legs", like a jock strap. Then take the shorter of the two ties & weave it from the sack half, through the front part & to the other side of the sack. Both ties then will go around the middle the waist & be tied.
