I blocked a cotton sweater and now the length is better but the sleeves got stretched out and are too long !! Anyway to remedy that?

Hi everyone. I’m really interested to know if it’s possible to knit a cardigan that is sold in a store but using my own design for example ?

Welcome Jujeee, Klswan and SONY007! Good to have you join us. We have knitters (and crocetters) at all levels. Thanks for joining.

@Klswan You may be able to shorten the sleeves by blocking them wider. Pin the sleeve out and dampen then let dry. Taking up some of the length into the width might help. If not, it may mean actually shortening the sleeves. If you need to do that, come back and start a new topic. There are other possibilities.

Hi y’all! I see this post I am replying to (my first post) is dated 2004? Maybe I did something wrong.

I have a first question: Do you count the cast on loops as a ‘row 1’?

Welcome to KnittingHelp!
The cast on loops are generally not considered a row. You can find videos especially for long tail cast ons that say this cast on counts as a row but most patterns do not count it.
If your pattern specifically says to count the cast on as row 1 then go by that but the usual rule is not to count the cast on row.
