I just got this pattern
and I have the perfect yarn for it. :cheering: BUT, I want the sleeves to be full-length sleeves and not 3/4 sleeves (and I’m considering adding a few inches to the body length so it hits high hip and not at my waist). The sleeves are made by knitting the cable band and picking up stitches to knit the stockinette stitch sleeves.
I have never tried to modify a pattern like this. Does anyone have any suggestions (or good reference books) on changing sleeves? I figure once I get from wherever I start on the sleeves to the 50 stitches the pattern calls for picking up at the 3/4 point, I can follow the pattern from there, but I have no clue how to work that first few inches of sleeve.
