Lay your front panel on your back panel.

Seam across only attaching the two extensions you made on the front panel. Be sure to align your stitches properly. A whip stitch is probably your best choice.

Now take your arms that you previously assembled and align them with the shoulder of the sweater. Add a stitch marker for the proper armpit location.

Now seam up from the bottom  portion of the body of the sweater to where you noted the arm pit location.

When you reach the arm pit you may now seam the sleeve around to attach it to the body of the sweater.

Finish off.

Repeat to attach the second sleeve.

Weave in your ends and turn your sweater right side out, now referred to as the Right Side.

Trimming

Neck

With the right side facing you, place one round of  SC around the neck of the sweater.
