Sew side and underarm seams; weave in all loose ends

Trim:  Insert hook in bottom of sweater near either side seam; Ch 2 for first HDC; work HDCs evenly along bottom, 3 HDC in bottom/front edge corner; HDC along front edge, neckline, (2nd) front edge; 3 HDC in bottom/front edge corner; HDC around bottom edge; slip stitch to starting Ch 2 to join.  Ch 2 for first HDC; work HDC in each HDC around with 3 HDC in center stitch on each corner; slip stitch to starting chain.  I worked a total of three HDC trim rows - depending on the look you want, you could do more (for more of a shawl collar look) or less.

Sleeves can be folded for a cuff on smaller infants

Cut two lengths of narrow ribbon approximately 14" each; fold each in half and insert one folded edge through any space in the base HDC in front about 2/3 from bottom edge; loop folded edge over loose ends and tighten for a tie; repeat for other side (you may want to tack the loop with needle and thread to secure).  If desired, you can weave a length of ribbon through the row of DC on edge of sleeves.
