I'm using a Debbie Bliss pattern from this book. My gauge is right on, yet this sleeve looks huge! The pattern says the sleeve will be five inches long with cuff turned back. This is eight inches sans cuff, so that's gonna be one huge cuff. What worries me even more, though, is the measurement from the top of the sleeve to the sleeve seam. Right now--before seaming--it's four inches! I think a six-year-old could get his arm in there. The entire sweater is only 10.5 inches from shoulder to hem. Grrr.
I hate to rip this all out, but I sure think the pattern is wonky. I may also run out of yarn before it's all over. Sigh. Most likely I'll keep going and see what happens. Full steam ahead?
