Supplies you will need:
sewing machine or serger
Once again, starting with the sleeves I used the serger to finish the edges. You don't have to use a serger - a simple zigzag on a conventional machine will work.
I then serged (or zigzaged) around the bottom edge, up one side of the front, around the neck, and down the other side. Doing this will ensure a nice 'finished' look for your sweater.
Next, pin the two front edges together - with the insides t ouching. Now stitch (serge or zigzag) starting at the bottom edge of the sweater, working your way towards the neck and stopping about 4" - 6" from the neck line. (Where you stop will depend on how low a cut you are comfortable with - again this is your sweater - make it work for you)!
Thanks again to everyone who attended the Do-It-Green workshop.
