how to measure sleeve

by Judy


I am knitting a sweater. The instructions for the sleeve after the cuff say to increase every fourth row and then every sixth row, then work even until measures 15 1/2inches from beginning. Do I measure that including the cuff?


Hi Judy,

Thank you for sending in your question. In General, measuring from the beginning means taking a measurement from a cast on row. So, to answer your question, yes, your measurement would include the cuff as well.

Thank for visiting and have a wonderful day!
