A perfectly smooth and custom fit set-in sleeve is not only a thing of beauty but is truly easy, too. Learn the shaping, fit and seaming secrets that will win you over to a beautiful, set-in sleeve every time.
Yarn and needles to sample with.
Using smooth, light-colored yarn and appropriate needles for a gauge of 4-4.5 stitches per inch, cast on 20 stitches and work in stockinette stitch for 3 inches (no selvedge stitches). Place on a holder and not not cut yarn or block. Work a second swatch the same as the first. Bring the same needles and plenty of yarn for swatching in class.
