Knitting larger sleeves

Moirae posted on 1/23/07 that she had knit deeper arm holes so she could make the bigger sleeves. I've read that the arms knit from the original pattern are snug. Is there a supplement to the pattern for larger arms? If not how do you calculate for larger diameter arms?

Meanwhile I'm plugging along with my Beaverslide Fisherman Tweed. I'm past the second cable turn on the front-back-front. I had some trouble getting started, making stupid mistakes, knitting while exhausted from shoveling 5 inches of sleet from the driveway. I'm not sure I'm loving this yarn for this project. I will suspend judgement till I'm done, though.

I think some people have knit the arms from the larger size (of course that doesn't help if you're already knitting the largest size) and then adjusted the armhole measurements to match that size too.

Good luck!
