Hello! I’m in the last stage of making my first sweater - from Rowan Babies - “Dumpling” sweater - and it says to attach the sleeves using a square set in method. How do I do this??? the explanation in the book is very vague:
“Set sleeve head into armhole, the straight sides at top of sleeve to form a neat right-angle to cast off sts at armhole on back and front, using back stitch.”
Uh, okay. I’ve already sewed up the sleeve seams (so they are no longer flat pieces, but now tubes) since the pattern said to do that first, then set in the sleeves. The hole for the sleeves in the body of the sweater is much larger than the circumference of the sleeve that I’m supposed to attach to it!
Can anyone help me? Do I make any sense what so ever?
