Or the width of the sleeve before the decreases is too short? I think it would help to have just the (1) pattern directions for the back of the sweater from the armhole decreases to the top of the shoulder and (2) st and row gauge.

the sleeve edge is to big on the front and back for the top of the sleeve. i am thinking that the pattern is wrong i have looked for a correction can't find one and i am fairly new to this. it is the first pattern that i have done

You can check online and see if there are any corrections for this pattern. Why don't you count the number of sleeve sts you have before the sleeve decrease and make sure that number is the same as the pattern calls for [60(66,74) depending on the size you're making]? Also, check the length of the front and back from the armhole decrease to make sure that length is what the pattern is calling for. Last edited by salmonmac : 02-13-2011 at 06:20 PM.
