MAKING UP

Block lightly before sewing together, following any yarn care instructions on the ball band.

Taking the front piece, fold over so the stitch markers are at each side and the cast on and cast-off edges are at the shoulder. Match to back and sew shoulder seams together on both sides.

Measure 18 (19:20:21:22:23:24:24:25:25) cm down the front and back from each shoulder seam, and mark. These marks indicate where the sleeve is sewn. Sew in place. Now sew the sleeve seam and the front edge to the marker to the back side seam.

Weave in ends.
