i'm sure your sweater will look great. These picked up sts always should so important and intimidating and in fact they turn out quite well. Take it step-by-step and you'll do fine.

Thanks. It does seem to be coming together nicely. I've finished the neckband and both shoulders now come the sleeves. Once again, I don't quite understand the instructions.

It states:
To finish: Sew neckband (done). Place markers 28.5 cm down from shoulder seems on front and back (done).

Sew cast off sleeve edges between markers (???)
Sew side and sleeve seams. (I think I got that)
Pin to measurements; block (???)

OK this is good.
For the sleeves, the 28.5cm mark is showing you where to place the top of the sleeve.You can fold the sleeve in half lengthwise and pin the halfway point of the sleeve top to the shoulder seam. The corner of the sleeve top (where the top of sleeve meets the side edge of the sleeve) should be pinned to the 28.5cm mark on each side. Pin the right sides together and line up the seam between the sweater body and the sleeve along the length from one 28.5 mark to the other with the shoulder pin at the halfway point.
