It is absolutely no secret that I love long, triangular shawlettes, because they are easy to wear and look great. And sometimes I wish I had something to warm my arms on chilly evenings, when I am just wearing a T-Shirt or a tank-top. Something that will stay in place when I move, goes over everything and adds a splash of color. So I made „Sleeves“: It is a shawlette that you can put your arms in, because the long ends are actually tubes. You will be able to dance in it without fear that it might come oﬀ! The knitting is pleasant and easy, mostly knit stitches with a few construction details
that will keep you interested.
I recommend a ﬁngering or sport-weight yarn, but the pattern is written such that you can use any other yarn (gauge is not important). You will just have to try it on your arm and decide how long you want your sleeves and neck opening to be. The wider you make your arms, the longer it will be in the back. In an appendix, key stitch numbers for ﬁve sizes are provided. My version (which is a generous size M) used 250g of Wollmeise Pure, taken from ten diﬀerent Mini-Skeins of „Taste of Wollmeise“. You can as well choose two entire skeins à 150g. Plan to use more yarn for larger sizes. If you are using multiple colors, do the color changes at the beginning of the rounds or at the beginning of a right-side-row.
