A little help with circular sleeves?

I am planning on knitting yet another CPH, (this time for me) using Cascade 220 in color #9453 which is called Amethyst Heather. I intend to knit the body in one big piece again and this time would like to try knitting the sleeves in the round... Since I've never knit a set-in sleeve in the round before, I'm not sure how to do it! Would I just knit as usual up to the cap shaping and at that point start knitting back and forth in rows for the remainder of the sleeve? It seems like that's too easy an explanation!! :-)

Advice would be appreciated!!

I'd like to knit the sleeves in the round, too. I've knit socks, and hats in the round, but not sleeves. I can't imagine there is any more to it than what you've described.

But I'd like to hear from someone who has done it, too.

My only reservation is using double point needles with something as large as a sleeve. This may be the time to try 2 circulars, which I've also never done.

It seems too easy, but that's it! It's exactly what I did and it worked out fine! Let us know how it goes :)

I have knit lots in the round... in fact, circular raglan style sweaters are my favorite to do, but I'd never done the set-in style... I'll give it a shot and see how it turns out!! I can always frog if I have to, right?!

Make sure to account for the ribbing by eliminating one stitch from each side of the original sleeve instructions - this stitch is not needed when you're knitting in the round because there is no need for a seam stitch on each edge.

Happy knitting!
