Reducing sleeve length
Hello

Is there any way we can shorten sleeve length of a completely finished sweater?
Please let me know any ideas that you have.

Thanks so much

You can *cut* the yarn and pull some out before binding off the cuff again.

If you're going to do the cutting thing make sure you cut the very first row - that way it's easier to determine how much you want to unravel and don't forget you will have to leave enough yarn after unraveling for casting off again.

Or if it's not too bulky you can turn in the amount that's too long and sew it down with yarn on the inside.
