Hello everyone… new here :happydance:
I’m a reasonably new knitter and attempting my first item of clothing that isn’t a hat scarf or gloves!
I have a gorgeous 40s cardigan pattern, I measured myself against the finished measurements on the pattern and all appeared well. I began by knitting one of the sleeves as I’m using vintage wool and not sure if I have enough (maybe a bit unwise there) so thought as the sleeves are puffy and would use a fair amount of wool I would guestimate whether there’s enough wool from how much one sleeve took.
Anyway, going a bit off thread there. I may have to find different wool now as here’s my question: The sleeve fits me around the top of my arm but is way too small around my shoulder. As the rest of the measurements appear to fit, can I (and more to the point how do I?!) alter just the sleeves so they fit, or do I need to enlarge the whole pattern everywhere, and if so how do I do that?
I think I’m ready to approach the mystifying task of increasing the pattern size but would be really grateful for some advice how to do that - none of the books I have show me how and I can’t afford to buy more books at the moment!
Sorry for the long post and thank you to anyone who can help!
