Something not right :(
Please help. I almost want to give up this project, my first clothes project.
I am not sure what I did wrong. I just felt something not right, especially after sew in the sleeve. As you can see from the picture below, the sleeve look like a square box or like a roof when I tried on it. :(
Thanks

This is what I did when come to Rows 13 onwards..
Row 13 : BO 5 sts and knit to the end.
Row 14 : BO 5 sts and purl to the end.
Row 15 – 18 : I do the “dec” on Row 15 on knit side.
Row 19 – 22 : “dec” on Row 19 knit side
Row 23 : “dec” knit side
Row 24 : purl
Row 25 : Joint Pleat
Row 26 : purl
Row 27 – 30 : “dec” on Row 27 knit side.
Row 31 – 34 : “dec” on Row 31 knit side
Row 35 – 38 : “dec” on Row 35 knit side
Row 36 – 49 : Keep repeating the same cycle

Work 11 rows in St st, maintaining dec every 4 rows.
Row 1 : BO 3 purl to the end
Row 2 : BO 3 and do the “dec”
Row 3 – 5 : purl, knit and purl
Row 6 – 9 : “dec” on Row 6 knit side.
Row 10 : “dec” knit side
Row 11 : purl
Last Bind Off (total 30 sts remaining).

It all looks right to me. I'm not sure what you mean by the sleeve looking like a box or roof?
It seems like you've maintained the decreases as the pattern calls for, Does the sleeve not fit nicely into the armhole? The schematic shows a 6" depth on the sleeve from the bind off of 5 sts. Is that about what you have?
Can you give us a link to a pattern photo? It's lovely knitting and a beautiful color. i'm sure you can get the sleeve to work.

I don't really have a pattern photo. But here is the link to the instruction.

Btw, what I meant is the top seem to plateau on the unattached sleeve. After I seamed it together, it seem like it makes a triangle shape on my shoulder and it look very ugly. Look I am wearing some sort of shoulder pads. It hang on my shoulder just as you see it on the 2nd pictures below on the hanger.

Here are the closer pictures..

I think I see what you mean, I'm not sure. What seaming method did you use? That might make a difference.

Ah, it looks like the triangle comes from the sudden bind off of the remaining sts.
You could try binding off 3sts at the beginning of the last ~6 rows or so to make this a more gradual bind off and not such a straight plateau.
You might wash and block to see if that softens the look.
You could round the seam when you get to joining the plateau corner to the shoulders so that it doesn't make such a point on each side. (This isn't my favorite possibility however.)
I've had this same worry about capped sleeves and one or all of the above has worked. Maybe try reshaping the top of the cap on second sleeve (after the pleat) and see if that helps. That seems like the neatest solution.
