Thought I would 'resurrect' this thread, as I've been working on this again.... I still have not started the cap shaping, but I'm at that point now where it's my next thing on this project...
I made the sleeves 18.5" before any cap shaping.. (my favorite sweater sleeves are 19" before shaping)... and have made the body 15" before starting any dividing into fronts and backs and ... (again, the same measurements as a favorite sweater)
images are 1 - with flash (shows true color)
and 2 - without flash (shows details better)
I now have to start the shaping, and was wondering... is it better to do the body of the garment first and then the sleeves, or does it matter?
