Assembly

You now have one large rectangular panel with a split in the middle.

Diagram A : Lay your panel flat and attach your yarn at the bottom of the split on each side (Point A & B) and seam up 80/88 sts, then finish off and weave in your end. This has created the head opening.

Diagram B : Count up 20 sts (Point C), reattach your yarn and seam up 40 sts to Point D. Finish off and weave in your end. Repeat this on the other side to create the other arm opening.
