The two panels with the number 1 on them are comprised of Rows 1-29.
The two panels with the letter A on them are comprised of Rows 1-30.
Holding the A and the 1 together on opposite panels, stitch seam together.
Holding B to B, stitch seam.
Holding C to C, stitch seam.

Now place ribbon ties along sides marked E.

NOTE: The skin of a premature baby is very fragile so I recommend only the softest of yarns.
