Sweater Debacle???
Okay, so I'm knitting my first sweater jacket for my 2 1/2 year old son. I'm using the Accordion pattern by Leigh Spencer shown in the link: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall03/PATTaccordion.html

I finished the pieces and am blocking them right now. The thing I've noticed, though, is that the body (following the pattern for a size 3T) SHOULD BE 16" long, but mine ended up 18"...I guess that's fine. My question, though, is that my sleeves are exactly 10", as pattern says they should be...is this too short for my 18" sweater? Should I increase the sleeves by 2" to compensate for the difference in body length? Is 12" enough? Shouldn't the sleeves be the same length (or longer) than the body length??? HELP! Thanks so much!!!
