SEWING

Starting about halfway down from the fold, sew down both sides using a slip stitch, making sure to line up the rows evenly. The unsewn spaces at the top are the armholes. Fasten off, weave in the ends.

After it’s sewn, pull the top and bottom so the arm seams are running horizontal through the middle. This is how you wear the piece, you can see that it’s looking more sweater-like! 🙂
