I’m making a sweater with sleeves that are pretty full at the bottom for my daughter. I’ve already ripped them out and made them smaller, and now she likes the diameter at her wrist, but wants it to get tighter up her arm. The sleeves are knit flat and are just a big rectangle.
My question is: should I do some decreases to make it fit smaller on her forearm, and then increase again to fit the top of her arm? Or would that look bad? I was thinking if I just decreased at either edge, that seam would be at the bottom of the arm, next to the body, so it wouldn’t really show. But will that make the arm wonky?
I know I could just try it and rip it out if it doesn’t work, but if someone else has some insight I’d appreciate it. This project seems like it’s gone on too long already, and I’m tired of ripping it out.
