I guess I've never had to sew up seams before and I'm unsure how to do it neatly. The pattern just says sew cuff seams, and then starts instructions for crocheting the rest of the sleeve in the round on top of that.
In other patterns in the book there are instructions to single crochet seams together, is this what is called for? Or perhaps i am supposed to slip stitch it together? How is this usually done?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I can't wait to finish this!

So I figured out how to sew the seams, i'm just whip stiching them but now i have to vent my frustration at the lack of guidance at the end of this pattern. It has all been relatively easy and straight forward until now.  The pattern just says sew shoulder seams then ease sleeve to fit, but there's no way to tell where exactly those shoulder seams should start or stop. Bleahh.
I'm so close!

My suggestion would be to put it on you or someone else to gauge where to sew the sleeves.  I HATE patterns that expect you to be a crochet/sewing genius!!!  It's always the details that get me, like the sewing and certain placements of stuff.  They really should have extended instructions for that stuff!!!
