Sewing the puppy together is causing me MUCH stress. I've just watched an amazing "YouTube" demonstrating matress stitch.

The instructions "TO MAKE UP" were written by someone who was obviously on his/her last bottle of ink.

here it is:

DO NOT PRESS. Join should seams. Placing centre of sleeve to shoulder seam, sew sleeves evenly between coloured threads. Join side and sleeve seams. Fold hood in half and join back seam. Sew hood in position, easing any extra fullness across back neck if necessary and placing shaped front edges to front neck, as pictured.

YEAH RIGHT

Wonderful!

I think for me it might not be possible to knit a hoodie once and be done, the ones I made must have been knitted 3 or 4 x each. But then, I jumped off the deep end and started a hooded cardigan when I started knitting.

Actually, that's how most finishing instructions read. They won't give you the steps for how to seam, figuring you would learn that somewhere else.

Sounds to me like this person was drinking the last bottle of ink while he or she was writing the "instructions."

I hope you can find better guidance than this, and if you have a specific question, ask here. You know you'll get a good answer double-quick!

Actually, those directions sound about right. I sewed all my kids' clothes when they were little. That's the correct order to put a garment together. I suggest you pin the pieces together before you seam them. They stretch out and you may find they don't line up. Then you have to take it all out and start over. Much easier to pin it together every inch or two all the way along the seam.
