See all of the posts here, here and here. In a few days I'm going to go back and flesh out the pattern and post it here in a coherent single post.
The first thing I did when I got back to work was stitched up about 3" under the right arm. I noticed the armhole was mighty large and I wanted the piece to be a bit more form-fitting around the chest area. I stitched it up with gray worsted weight yarn and left an opening about 10" from top to bottom.
Next I made a final panel. This one wrapped all the way around from the left shoulder to the middle of the back, going under the right arm. I just used a slightly modified bulky cable stitch and made the strip 28". I stitched it on accordingly and allowed it to curl a bit under itself to create a very nice, finished looking edge.

Repeat from * until 28" in length
