Apple Cozy

This is from a free Ravelry pattern. Sure there's no good reason to use an apple cozy, but, but, I had to have one.


This is from a pattern in Piecework of an item worn in the mid 1800's. It is called a sontag. It is knitted in a checkerboard pattern that has a back and then two long wings that cross your chest. Then there is a crocheted edge. There are cords that come from the back corners to tie in front and then there is a button and loop on the wings to button in back. I am hoping T can help me make the traditional tassels for the cords.
