Joining

Three-needle bind off the ‘shoulder seam’ at the top of the swatches, or cast off and sew the seam. Don’t forget to have right sides facing when you do this – it’s easy to attach them incorrectly (I know from experience).

For picking up stitches later it’s better to start the 3-needle bind-off at the armhole edge and work towards the ‘neck’.

Please block the sample so it won’t curl.
