Single crochet into every stitch along bottom opening of the sweater in a contrasting color.
Single crochet into every stitch along the edge of the two flaps with a contrasting color.
Sew a fastener on the flaps. I used Velcro feel free to try something else because it took forever to get it sewn on. I think next time I may use a cute button and make a button hole.
Sew a snap fastener on the little “tail” at the bottom opening closes snuggly like so. This keeps your V opening from gaping open and getting caught in stuff as your go running by.
