Can you link to your pattern? Is it worked from the top down or from the bottom up?

A link would help.

I can say though that if it's top down then the armhole size is set unless you go back to the top edge of it. You could ad more decreases at this point, but it may not look the way you want.

What pattern are you making? Is the rest of the sweater the right size? Does your gauge match that given in the pattern?

dont like the sleeves
Its a patons baby pattern the rest of the pattern seems to be fine.
my tension etc is fine its just the style ? for instance the back has starting 57 stitches & the sleeves have 41 so its always going to be big. I like the rest of the pattern.

Can you please link to your pattern or give us the name of it? Seeing it would be a huge help.

I can find the book online but not a picture that is clearly "Jessica." Is it seamed or worked in one piece? That might help someone that can figure these things out.
