Good morning guys,
I have another question as I work on my sweater. So far only a few tears have been shed over this project lol. But I'm learning a lot. I'm also coming to realize just how much I've learnt in the past year since I started knitting.
I'm nearly finished the first sleeve, I've decided to make it longer than the pattern suggests. I found out from contacting the designer the sleeves are elbow length, which they failed to mention in the pattern. So I've decided to make then 22 inches long, my sleeve length.
So hear comes the question, Where is the right place to take my measurement from?
Do I take it down the center on the sleeve, or do I take it down the edge of the knitted fabric, which ultimately gives me a longer measure.
At first my immediate thought was down the center but after I had completed the pattern as printed, my center was only 14 inches whereas the edge was the 17 1/2 that the pattern talks about...
So needless to say I'm not sure... Any thoughts?
