Okay so now you want to knit a sleeve.
You need to have decided what the width at the widest part is. For this sweater we will make that 46cm (for a man).
The wrist will be 26 cm.
So you will need to increase from 26 cm to 46cm.
You know how do to do this from previous isntructions.
What you really need to know is this:
The sleeve head MUST be worked over the same amount of rows as you decreased over on the body.
So on the body you decreased over 64 rows. Remember you must decrease that 3 cm group on each side of sleeve head first. You do not start to count rows for sleeve head until this is done.
Once done, you will count rows until row 64 has been done, which is the final row of the piece.
Okay. You want to decrease from 40 cm to 20 cm over 64 rows. You know how to work that out by following the rules as previously shown.
The whole sleeve needs to be 64 cm in length, not including rib. Our gauge is 40rws to 10cm
So you divide 64 by 10 and multiply by 40. This leaves you with 256.
Your sleeve is knit over 256 rws.
Your sleeve head is 64 rws so you take 64 from 256 which leaves 192. So you need to knit 192 rws before the sleeve head decreasing.
In practice, you knit 190 rws. Now you decrease the 3cm worth of sts on right side, knti across , repeat fro left side. Knit back to right. Now your row counter reads 192.
Turn row counter back to 0. Now yout start the 64 rows of decreases. Once complete, your sleeve is done.
THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO REMEMBER IS THAT YOU DO THE SLEEVE HEAD DECREASES AND THE BODY DECREASES OVER THE SAME AMOUNT OF ROWS. ALSO THAT YOUR SLEEVE HEAD IS TWICE THE WIDTH OF THE STR8 PART OF TOP OF BODY. IN THIS CASE THE ST8 PART IS 10CMS SO YOUR SLEEVE HEAD IS 20CM WIDE AT TOP.
