After we got one piece of the rectangle, now it was time to assemble.
Lay the piece of rectangle in flat and fold each corner inward until they meet.
Then use your yarn needle to seam the corner with your preferred method ( I used whip stitch) and leave holes for the arm. For the armholes, I leave my one about 5 inches or you’re preferred length.
Repeat for the other side.
