The poem that goes with it:,
Now that you're getting older,
And the nights are getting colder,
Nothing could be neater,
Than this little Peter Heater.

Willie Warmer #1 - Crocheted Version


Worsted weight yarn
G hook


Sack - make 2 "halves"
ch 25.
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and across. Turn. 24 sc.
Rows 2-20: ch 1, sc across. Turn.
Leave a tail 14 inches long for sewing. Weave yarn tail in sc sts. and draw up tight.
Make second half.

Main "Bit"
Rnd 1: ch 4; join into a ring. Make 8 sc in ring.
*Note: Don't join rounds; mark the beginning of each round.
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc around. 16 sc.
Rnd 3: * 1 sc in the next sc, 2 sc in the next sc, * around. 24 sc.
Rnd 4: work even around.
Rnd 5: * 1 sc in the next 2 sts, 2 sc in the next st, * around. 32 sc.
Rnds 6-36: work even around. After the 36th round, sl st into the first sc of the rnd and end off, leaving a tail for sewing.

Finishing
Sew together the 2 sack halves of the sack along the outer edges (turning edges). Attach the Main Bit, centering over one of the seams, sewing 9 sts of the Main Bit (1 st to the dividing seam) of the sack.
Attach yarn with a sl st to the back of the sack's center seam. Sc around, making 1 sc where the Main Bit and sack joins on each side. Do 4 more rounds of sc, marking the beginning of each round. Join with a sl st to the beginning of the round. Then:
Ch 4, sk 2 st, * 1 dc, ch 1 in the next st, sk the next st, * around. Join with a sl st to the 3rd ch of the ch 4. Weave in all ends.

Ties
Short-Cinch Tie: Make a chain 18 inches 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 and 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 and weave it from the sack half, through the front part and to the other side of the sack. Both ties then will go around the middle the waist and be tied.
Decorate as desired!
