Joining the Top to the Side and Adding the Filling

Position the top piece on top of the side piece, aligning the stitches. Join Yarn A (or any of your choice) with a ss to the 1st st of the last round of the side. 1dc into both the top stitch and the corresponding side stitch, repeat all the way around until one third of the joining is left to do.

Top Tip!

If you find you have a differing number of stitches between the top and side pieces when joining the two pieces together don’t panic. Just do 2dc’s into one stitch of the piece which has the fewer number of stitches and 1dc into two adjacent stitches on the other piece (the one which has more stitches).
