No-Sew Set-in Sleeves with Sarah Peasley
Are you tired of trying to figure out how to sew in a set-in sleeve? Have you ever tried to design one from scratch? Those bell curves and ratios can drive you nutty! Learn how to design an armhole to fit YOUR body, then pick up and knit a perfect set-in sleeve from the top down with very little math, and no unsightly seams! Armhole shaping variations, alternative stitch patterns, and sleeve decrease calculations will also be discussed.
