I completed a sweater last winter for my son and he really likes it except
for the bell-bottom sleeves. This sweater has a ribbed pattern throughout (sorry, I don't know how to post a photo attachment here) and the sleeves do not end in cuffs. The sleeve seams were the last to be finished when the sweater was completed. I would like to taper the sleeves from about elbow down to wrist. The question is: Do I take out the seams from elbow down and remove from the width somehow (cutting?) or is there a simpler, less drastic way to do this? I don't have very much spare yarn, about 4 yards. And there's about 1 to 1-1/2 inches each side of the seams that needs to be removed for the fit he wants.
Thank you to any and all who can give me advice.
