  • Fronts and back are separated at the underarms and each is worked separately up to the shoulders.
  • Shoulder sts are then placed on holders while front panels are continued.
  • Shoulder sts are seamed together using the Three Needle Bind-Off technique.
  • Front panel ends are then connected (via Three Needle Bind-Off), and then side of panels are picked up and connected to the back neck (also via Three Needle Bind-Off). Photo tutorial provided of this entire process.
