Should I be afraid if...
... the model in the picture has rolled her sleeves up about six times?
(Sorry, this is the clearest picture I can find at the moment. Martin Storey Garter-Rib Sweater, Classic Knits for Real Women, All Seasons Cotton)
I've finished the increases on every fourth row on both sleeves simultaneously. I'm wondering if I should do the remaining incs on every sixth row as per pattern, or more frequently to get to the correct stitch count with less length. I need a certain stitch count for the raglan shaping.
The schematic is only helpful up to a point, I think the 'problem' is that although the sleeve length shown (45cm) is not bad, because it's a baggy jumper, your 45cm is not starting close to your torso, but on the fabric of the roomy body of the jumper.
Any thoughts gratefully considered....
