Let’s talk yarn! I used 2 Lion Brand Wool-Ease DK Cakes in the color Forever Young. I love the subtle color changes of this yarn. Even when the color changed in the middle of a row, it’s not super noticeable. Any DK weight yarn would work for this project.

Join yarn to the bottom of an armhole. Work stitches evenly around the armhole. The sleeves are made in turned rounds. Place a stitch maker in the first stitch to help identify round 1.

Round 2: ch 2, turn, dc in each stitch around, join to first dc with sl st

The next rounds include a dc2tog. Each round will decrease by 1 stitch. Decreasing is optional and you can stop any time the sleeve is tight enough.

  1. This sweater is adorable! In the body section, the “repeat previous round to round 30, 32…” line lists dc count different from count before or after. Is there a decrease?

  2. On the first row/round, if I chain instead of fdc, do I join the chain and then do the DC around, join and turn for row 2? Thank you. I hope not a stupid question.

    1. I figured it out. Did the chain and first row of dc then joined, worked out fine. Will fix the little gap when I weave the ends.

  3. Hello, I love the pattern, I am making the size 4 currently. I am having problems with stitch counts though when making the sleeve holes. My count is correct on row 15 at 148, but then after finishing row 16 I am at 86 somehow instead of 82, and no not counting the ch stitches… I have undone and redone this 4 times and I cannot figure out what I am doing wrong to end up with 4 extra stitches. I Dc up to the ch 2 and then put 1 dc in the ch 2 sp and then ch 3 and sk to next ch 2 space and Dc and so forth. Very confused, hopefully you can help me unravel this confusion. Thanks 🙂

      1. Yes I did, I had 148 on row 15 but on 16 and forward it’s 86 instead of 82. I went and redid it 4 times, same results every time.

    1. I came up with 4 extra stitches on round 17 working a size 4, too. I’m just going to roll with it. I’m starting round 20 with 92 stitches and since stitch count has been stable last three rounds I’m going to carry on and see what happens.
