Weave in ends.

Joining Top Together:

> Lay both pieces flat on top of each other with wrong sides facing outwards.


> Seam up both shoulders using needle and colour A yarn. Fasten off and weave in ends.

> To seam sides together, use needle and yarn, leaving the top 8 rows unworked for armholes, seam downwards on both sides ( I used the mattress stitch to give more of a seamless finish )

Fasten off and weave in ends.
