If you find that the sleeve measurement of a pattern is too long for you, it's not difficult to recalculate the shaping instructions.

This tutorial is the 5th in a series and will introduce you to the Knit it Now taper tool PLUS walk you through the pencil and paper calculation for lengthening or shortening a sleeve.

This information is invaluable to knitters and can be applied to skirts, sweaters, and many other areas of your knitted pieces.

We recommend you review the first 4 tutorials in this series.
