How to set a sleeve to a yoke / body

Tags: jackets, jumpers,

In this DROPS video we show how it is thought that a sleeve will be sewn to a yoke/body so that it matches a measurement chart. Follow the pattern, whether it is knitted from above or from below. Cast on or cast off stitches for armholes, read the pattern / see measurement chart. Work the sleeve around to the stated measurements, then work back and forth to finished measurements. When the sleeve and body are sewn together make sure that the marks on sleeves fit bottom of armhole.

We use the yarn DROPS Nepal in the video.

You must read the pattern and look at the measurement chart to be able to follow this video properly. You’ll find the pattern by clicking on the picture below.

Your videos are usually great. But on this one you show us half a video of basic knitting on the sleeve, then DON'T show us how to sew in the sleeve, which is supposed to be the point of the video. You show where each bit goes and then the seam is magically just sewn, without showing how. I've been knitting for years, but have never seen a sleeve seam sewn from the right side of the work.

Dear Sarah, this video might then help you to understand how to sew the sleeve (cast off edge against edge stitches). Happy knitting!

Hoe ga je over van rondbreinaalden naar 5 naalden voor het verder breien van de mouw, wat met de overgebleven steken, uit de beschrijving kan ik dit niet begrijpen. Als ik de beschrijving volg is de mouw veel te smal en weet niet wat met de overgebleven steken moet blijven. Hopend op een snel antwoord zodat ik mijn werk kan afwerken. Met vriendelijke groeten
