*While the front and back panels are made the same, you only need to leave the tails on one panel at row 41 to sew the two panels together

Joining the shoulder panels together  ( check picture below )

We’ll sew the 13 hdc on each side together. Start sewing on the wrong side using the tails the we left at row 41. Use any method to sew you like, I used a yarn needle.


Joining the side panels together  ( check picture below )

Fold the sweater top in half at the shoulder seam. Cut a new strand of yarn 30″ long, enough to sew the side.We’ll sew into the wrong side. Start sewing from the bottom up to the side until you reach the row 26 at the marker, cut the yarn just enough to weave in the end. * Leave the arm hole open
