Hi. Question re sleeve instructions. The instruction is to start decrease for sleeve when garment measures 3cm. Please advise on the correct length. Also cast off lengths on sleeve get smaller as the size of the garment increases. Should these be reversed? Thanks for advice.

DROPS Design 23.04.2018 kl. 10:21:

Dear Mrs Campbell, sleeves are worked top down and dec start after 3 cm have been worked after picking up sts. The measurements are smaller in larger sizes since the shoulders are wider. Feel free to adjust measurement to your own - comparing finished measurements shown in chart. Happy knitting!

Back instructions: "2 sts in garter st in each side of piece" Doesn't that make these "edge stitches"? I don't understand the following instructions: "When piece measures 10 cm / 4'', cast on 1 new st in each side of piece at the end of the next 2 rows" - If I add one new st each side, then are there 3 "edge" sts on each side? And I don't understand what this means: "(= edge st) = 78-82-86-94-102-110 sts."

DROPS Design 20.08.2015 kl. 13:49:

Dear Mrs Haugen, you start first working 2 sts in garter st in each side, then inc 1 st in each side and continue with A.1 inside 1 st in garter st in each side. Happy knitting!

Barbara Haugen 20.08.2015 - 01:22:

It seems that if you "cast on 1 new st in each side of piece at the end of the next 2 rows" the total number of stitches will increase by 4, but in the directions below you have indicated only an increase of 2. Is this an error, or am I not understanding? Cast on 76-80-84-92-100-108 sts on circular needle size 6 mm / US 10 with Paris... When piece measures 10 cm / 4'', cast on 1 new st in each side of piece at the end of the next 2 rows (= edge st) = 78-82-86-94-102-110 sts

DROPS Design 20.08.2015 kl. 13:47:

Dear Mrs Haugen, you first inc 1 st at the end of 1st row (= 1 st inc), then turn and work next row inc 1 st at the end of this row (= 1 st inc), you have now increased 2 sts = 1 st at the end of both last rows. Happy knitting!
