Knitted sweater with uneven sleeves
Hi Friends!

I knitted my first sweater today I darned(hehe) all the pieces together and then I realized the sleeves were uneven . I checked the measurements the right sleeve is 6" and the left is @6.5". Please tell me there is something I can do to fix this mistake. I'm using a philar acrylic yarn so I think blocking is out of the question

If you need them both to be 6", take off the BO of the longer one and rip back to 6" and BO again. If they should be 6", then take off the BO of the short one and knit a few more rows and BO again.

If the sleeves were 6" long, it was a baby sweater. That's completely doable in just a few hours.
