Hi y’all! I’m making the SNB skully for my “little” brother and as I approach the sleeves, I am skeptical of the pattern and would like a second opinion.
According to the pattern, you pick up sts around the armholes and knit down. Fine, less seaming, sounds good. But there is no shaping/decreasing. The arm is like a post, as wide at the wrist as it is at the armpit. This doesn’t seem right to me. It looks ok in the picture, but the picture doesn’t give a very good view.
Seriously, is this going to look ok or should I take matters into my own hands and do some subtle decreases? I don’t want to over-do it and make the sleeves like remember in the 80s when we tucked our pants into our socks? Little bro won’t mind if it is baggy, but I’m just not trusting that the pattern won’t be too baggy…
Advice? Input? Unrelated comments?
