The height in the middle of the sleeve cap is 9 cm but the outher edge will be 19 cm. This depends though if you are having the right gauge, so that you have the correct width on the sleeve. Remember Pythagorean theorem ?

Rhoda 05.05.2008 - 01:31:

I am having a problem on the sleeve. The armhole on the sweater is 19cm. On the sleeve it says when it measures 49cm to bind off 4 then go until it measures 57cm then bind off 3. Then when piece measures 58cm bind off. Then there is only 9cm for lenght of armhole. It will be 10cm short. So what am I doing wrong. Please let me know. Rhoda
