Make up into shrug:

Right sides together with the ribbing at the top and bottom – stitch along plain edge. Now bring ribs and sides, right sides together, at the bottom and stitch up 10 inches on each side to make sleeves. Press lightly – leaving plain edge with a bit of a roll at the sleeve edge. Or edge could be finished with crochet. Weave in ends.
