Here are the instructions for my sleeve. I had to frog an almost complete sleeve because I had measured 22" at 68 stitches. I measured against my bf from whom the sweater is for, and it was still a little tight. I’m wondering what the best way to modify these instructions will be. (It’s so strange, I checked my gauge at multiple places and even made up another swatch and it matches perfectly :?? )
Where is the best place to make the increases? At the beginning (so every 2 rows instead of 4)? Or near the end (every 4 rows instead of 6)? Or a combination of both?
