The pattern really doesn't say. I
I am really enjoying knmitting the sweater -- my first. I was scared for almost a week after I did my calulations, but couldn't visualize all of the directions in my mind.
I am about 2 inches from the point I need to separate out the sleeves. The only problems I have had is remember if it is an odd or even row (You only increase every other) and figuring out what kind of increase to do. The designer just said to pick my favorite on. Since I haven't done anthing with an increase, I tried different ones. I landed on a bar increase.
I liked the pattern becasue I could use any yarn I wanted and then custum fit it.
