SLEEVES

Round 1 (RS): Join yarn to RS of sleeve opening with sc at side seam, sc around sleeve opening (note: I placed 1 sc in all the sc row ends and 2 sc in the dc row ends to get an even edge, you might have to adjust so you have an even edge.) Make sure you have a multiple of 2 sc around the opening. Do not join, do not turn. 

Round 2: *Split sc in next sc, sc in back loop of next sc; repeat from * around, do not join, do not turn.

Repeat Round 2 of cap sleeve edging 6 more times.  Sl st to first sc, fasten off weave in ends.  

Repeat on the opposite sleeve opening.

You are all done! Time to enjoy your new sweater!
