How To Crochet Sweater Sleeves?

How do you make puff sleeves?

Start with a paper pattern of a sleeve. Mark the middle third of your pattern with parallel lines 3-4cm apart, cut and open out the pieces. The fuller the sleeve you are after the further you spread the parts. Traditionally it cannot be made more then 5cm.

How long does it take to crochet a sweater?

If a beginner spends a whole day knitting, he or she can finish a sweater in 3 days at most. But if he or she spends 4-5 hours a day knitting, it may take five days to complete one sweater. Beginners usually get more comfortable with different techniques as they do more knitting every day.

How many stitches do I need for a sleeve cuff?

The rule of thumb is to decrease 10% of the sleeve stitches for the cuff, and this typically gives me 108 stitches for the cuff (or 27 x 4 stitch (knit 2/purl 2) ribs – it being important to operate in multiples of 4 in order to get a whole number of ribs, as usual).
