    • This was a top-down raglan style and the body actually increases until the very hem, so the sleeves are actually kind of cruising along at this point. BUT I’m a bit antsy because I’m going for a full-length sleeve whereas the pattern calls for 3/4. So I see the photo of a finished sweater that looks just like mine and yet mine is not done. ….

      • True! Plus, I like 3/4 sleeves, but moreso on tops. Sweaters, I prefer full-length. I think they’re easier to wear, plus I can easily roll or scrunch them up my forearms if I want less coverage.

      • I agree – I have a pile of 3/4 length sleeved t shirts – great for summer wear as short sleeves seem to be so skimpy these days (I must be getting old!) and good for under a long sleeved sweater when it is not subzero. šŸ™‚ But sweaters need long sleeves to keep out the drafts. šŸ™‚

    • I will sometimes do 2aat with toe-up socks, but with top-down they are usually my bread & butter travel project or my “I’m-not-paying-a-lot-of-attention” project so doing them one at a time simplifies things. Plus, I do really love my DPNs. šŸ™‚
