Construction

Lay two sides on top of one another and, using the Mattress Stitch, sew front and back together on left and right from rows 5 to 24 (where the stitch markers are). Leave long enough tails that you can adjust/loosen/tighten after completing the rest of the sweater.

Sew the top (shoulders) together from the outside in, using the Mattress Stitch for (11, 12, 14, 15, 17, 18, 20, 20, 22) stitches on each side. Before weaving in ends check that the neck hole is a good size for you. Add or remove sewn stitches to your liking.

Attach yarn at either bottom right corner. (Or left if you’re left handed)

When finished with the second side, do not fasten off. Rotate to work up the side slit, and down the other side. 3sc in corner st, sc across bottom of sweater. 3sc in final st, rotate to sc up slit and down the other side. 3sc in corner st, sc in each st to end. Fasten off and weave in all ends.
