Assemble Time
With may use your tapestry needle to sew your seams together, I chose to use my hook and slip stitch the seam closed.
Folding your work in half, wrong side facing your, match your sleeves. With your yarn and 8mm hook begin at the hand opening and slip stitch both seams together until you reach the underarm, you will now match your side seams and sl st those seams together.
Repeat for the other side. 
Hide all loose tail and you are done.
