On to the sleeves for me! However, there is a confusing part to the instructions. I'm making the smallest size. If I understand the following correctly, this means that I simply do stockinette stitch for the rows in question, right? This is the part I mean:

CO 99...stop working after finishing a WS row.

Next row (RS) K2 [k2tog] 0 (0,0,1,0,0) time, knit to last 4 sts, [k2tog] 0 (0,0,1,0,0)time, knit to end--99 (99, 105, 107, 115,121) st rem.
Purl 1 row.
Next Row (RS) K2, [k1f&b] 0 (0,1,0,0,1) time, knit to last 2 sts, [k1f&b] 0 (0,1,0,0,1) time, knit to end--99 (99, 107,107,115, 123) sts.

Questions: Are you doing this flat or in the round?

According to what you have here you'd do the knit stitch all the time which leads me to believe you are doing this in the round. Doing the knit stitch in the round creates stockinette w/o purling.

No, it's knit flat. I wrote that first line so that you can tell that you end up with the same no. of sts as you cast on.

I guess too much was left out by the "..."? That part just says to work in stockinette until you have a piece 4 1/2" long.

But the part you wrote out has you doing knit stitches on R 1 and R 2, which is where you're confused.... Is there a garter ridge at that point?

Nope, all stockinette. You end in the WS row, then go to Row 1, then purl a row, then the next row (second bolded part).

As I read it, yes. If you're doing the smallest size, this would be 3 rows of stocking stitch (knit 1 row, purl 1 row, knit 1 row).

Good luck!

Thanks! I thought so, but wanted to make sure. I guess the info was confusing but they had to accommodate the other sizes.
