1-Seaming - this yarn has a thick/thin quality. I chose a section of yarn that was all “thin”, and used it for seaming. I didn’t have any trouble with the “thin” section. It’s the “thick” section that might give trouble -tending to pull apart.
2-Shoulder seaming: If you have not seamed garter to garter, do a a search to see some videos of this technique.

The versatile tabard, usually reserved for cooler weather, makes a transition to summer when worked in a cotton-based yarn, NORO Uchiwa. The simple front and back show off the yarn’s coloring. Seed stitch finishes the edges, and seed-stitch tabs, three on each side, hold the pieces together. Just two to three balls are enough for all sizes.
