Lay the piece of rectangle in flatted and fold each corner inward until they meet then using your yarn needle to seam the corner with your prefer method ( I used whip stitch) and leaving  holes for the arm. For the arm holes I leave my one about 5 inch or your prefer length.

Sleeve for the arm.

Rejoin your new yarn at any stitch of the arm hole.
