I've managed to knit down to the elbow of the first sleeve on this cardigan. I simply did not feel like knitting the sleeve separately and sewing it in, as the pattern called for, so I picked up stitches around the armhole (consulting many different articles online about how to do this) and knit short rows until I finished the sleeve cap, then knit in the round down to the elbow. It looks a bit messy on one side of the sleeve cap but hopefully I can tighten it up after it's done. But now I'm stumped as to how I want to finish the sleeve. I'd like to do something to counteract the boxiness of the sweater but I have no idea what that might be. 3/4 length sleeves? Long sleeves? Straight sleeves? Cuffed sleeves? Bell sleeves? I guess I will browse through about a million more patterns to find the answer.
