Sleeve increases

Oh dear, I think I increased on the sleeves incorrectly - every 6th row instead of every 8th for the first few. Well, anyway, I have finished the front pieces and back. I have used the Tahki Donegal Tweed in a teal with orange and other color fleks. Here they are ->

No worries. The sleeves are really tight anyway, so it's kind of good that you added extra stitches. Now you can wear it without your arms suffocating. I would suggest you seam up one arm and try it on before you even think about frogging.

I'm just working on the sleeves too and I did what you di, increasing every 6 rows. It seems fine, though I haven't seamed it up yet.

Yeah, it is SO hard for me to count those teensy rows. Ok, they're not that teensy, but still!

I did mine that way on purpose to give more room in the arms and I love how it turned out.
