Seaming

Fold cardigan so the right sides are facing out. Measure approx. 6″ from the bottom of the cardigan up the side edge. You can seam with your preferred method (ex. whip stitch), I like to use slip stitches. Slip stitch from the 6″ mark for approx. 12″ from the bottom of the cardigan on both sides.
