Sleeve Instruction Help

[b][color=indigo]I’m making this http://users.netcon.net.au/~cake/jumperpattern.html sweater for my new grandson for next winter.[/color]

[color=red]Sleeves: Using 3.75mm needles cast on 28 (32, 36) sts and rib approx 12 rows - inc 1 stitch at each end of row.[/color]

[color=indigo]Does this mean to increase one st at the beginning and end of last row of ribbing?

And what does this mean?[/color][color=red](The same instructions apply if you want the two sleeves to match). [/color][color=indigo] Wouldn’t one always want the sleeves to match?[/color][/b]

Hi Lizzie,

Yes, you would add the sts at the end of the ribbing. (edit: on the first row of stockinette)

The pattern is using a self-patterning type of yarn, and the writer is trying to explain how to match up the self-striping/patterning behavior to have the pieces look the same.

Yes, of course you’d want the 2 sleeves to be the same length…and you can accomplish this by doing both at the same time or keeping track of the # of rows you do before starting armhole decreases.
