How do I add cabling to a sleeve?
I am knitting this beautiful sweater - one color. I want to add some "variety" to it with some cables on the sleeves. I know how to do the cables but I don't know how to offset the standard sleeve width to accommodate them. Do I ADD stitches so that I can have the sleeve continue to be the original width? I don't want to knit the sleeve with the two rows of cables and then have the sleeve be too skinny/tight because of the thickness/raised area of the cable. Is there a general guideline for putting cabling into a regular sweater sleeve?
