Confused about pattern

Hello, I am Bessadina and I have signed up in a he hope of learning more about teading a pattern. I have started a cardi for the most wonderful husband -my hubby- but I seem to stumble at the first block: i knitted a sleeve twice, starting the 3rd atempt… no he is not an octopus, it must be me. Pattern is sirdar 8434 and i am doing the size 44… if anyone could put me out of my misery I would be very grateful! don’t know how many more sleeves I have in me…

Hi Bessadina and welcome!
What seems to be the problem with the sleeves? You can quote a few lines from the pattern if that will help but don’t post large portions of the pattern please. We can run into copyright problems.
