me again! I did go to the LYS and showed them how the sleeve looked and got an "oh dear" basically. LOL So I did rip them out and picked up the stitches as per your recommendations (I unintentionally wound up with precisely 70 stitches picked up.) I know this probably doesn't matter, but have to ask since I'm Type A like that: What decreases should I use? The round begins and ends at the center of the underarm and in the pattern, it was written to increase at beginning and end of round, so I was figured I would work it sort of like a sock, k1, k2tog, k to last 3 sts, ssk, k1.

Thanks again!

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. - Marianne Williamson

Yep, you can decrease them that way or the other way around. Though I like to do them before and after the beginning of round. Come to the end of round, dec, k1, slip marker, k1, dec, or with only 1 st between them. That way they appear to be on the same round instead of one slightly higher than the other. Or you can do a double dec, slip 2, k1 psso. The middle st would be your 'seam' stitch.
