View Full Version : Need some pattern advice

03-08-2010, 07:25 PM
I am making this pattern (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall09/PATTescuelita.php) and was wondering. Would you keep the sleeves like they are or go with a stockinette with a cable up the middle similar to the Central Park Hoodie. I am making this for my daughter and not sure i like this ribbed sleeve. (personally i think I will get bored with knit two purl two all the way up the sleeve and may not finish because of it.) So any and all opinions are welcome. I already have the body part done and am about to start the sleeves. i have never done a bottom up sweater before so it was simple so far the sleeves joining in may give me problems but I will ask away when I get to them.

You could do it in just stockinette (that much ribbing would drive me nuts) or with a cable as on the fronts.

That's a cute sweater! May be instead of the entire sleeve being ribbed you could just do the outside of the sleeve..maybe 3 ribs and the rest stockinette. I saw that on a sweater and it looked great.

I decided to do a cable up the sleeve witha cuff of ribbing like the bottom of the main sweater so kind of similar to CPH. I got one sleeve almost done last night. I think if I wouldhave done just ribbing I would have been bored last night and put it down andwho knows when i would have picked it up again.
