After quite a wait I received the extra yarn I needed to make long sleeves on this top which was for a short sleeved top.
I already changed the bottom of this, the pattern had a folded hem which I found to be too bulky and stiff and landed on a most unflattering part of my torso. So I undid the folded hem and replaced with a little picot edge which is quite nice although a little flared out.
I need to extend the length and looking for any ideas and suggestions of what might work.
I have both colours of yarn but not sure if the additional piece might be better in a single colour, perhaps grey.
I think I can pick up and knit (or purl) from the wrong side a little up from the bottom edge to create a kind of layer underneath for the extra length.
I also need it a little tighter or stretcher for the extra length rather.
Any and all ideas are welcome.
