How to measure sleeve length

The last few years it has become fashionable to wear fur vests. It is stylish and comfortable. The vest warms the body and looks beautiful, you can wear it on a thin blouse, if it is not cold, but if the weather turned bad outside, then the vest is worn even over a leather or regular jacket.

But you decided to make a sleeveless fur vest so that it was a full-fledged jacket.

If your waistcoat has a shortened sleeve, or it has a lowered shoulder, then it is easy to tie the sleeves, you do not have to knit a dummy (the top of the sleeve is under the armhole), the sleeve will be even as a pipe –

How to measure sleeve length

  • You will need thick wool yarn (2 skeins) and needles of medium thickness,
  • we measure the length of the sleeve, from the edge to the wrist, and the girth of the arm at the top,
  • we collect loops from the calculation – 1 cm x 2 loops, if the arm circumference is 30 cm = 60 loops,
  • we knit a usual elastic band (1 person., 1 external), if the length of the sleeve is 50 cm, then we knit approximately 125-130 rows, on the basis of 1 cm x 2, 5 rows.
  • each received rectangle must be stitched to get a sleeve-pipe,
  • sew the sleeves to the vest.

Do not want to sew the sleeves, and wear them separately, like high gloves.

If you know how to knit various patterns and braids, then the sleeves will be more interesting.

You can also tie the sleeves long to about the middle of the palm and leave a hole for the thumb not sewn up, in the seam.

Get fashionable "gloves mitts" – when palms freeze: lower the sleeve and pass the thumb through the hole, if it is not cold: lapel up, fold the sleeve up.

Knitted sleeves, usually thick and give a small amount of hands. In my opinion, the fur vest looks much more advantageous with a black turtleneck, so the feminine silhouette is preserved when the vest is massive. You can complement the outfit with high leather gloves.

If you still want to tie the sleeves for more severe weather conditions, then I suggest the following option.

When knitting, it is necessary to throw in an additional loop once every six rows.

Also, the number of loops closer to the palm depends on whether you want to make a small rubber band, or see a looser version of the product, as in the figure below.

If you do not want to wear powerful knitted sweaters under a fur vest, then the solution will be to create sleeves that will help to warm open arms from frost.

To connect the sleeves, it will be necessary to carry out a series of calculations, which is why I propose to use the technique described below.

When measuring, one should proceed from the fact that there are three loops for approximately 1 centimeter. Accordingly, it is not difficult to calculate the number of loops in the lower and upper parts of the sleeve.

Further, depending on the difference between the maximum and minimum values ​​of the loops and the height of the sleeve, we calculate the number of rows and the number of loops in each. Particular attention should be paid to knitting the neck.

The first thing we start knitting with is knitting a sleeve with needles – this is the removal of three main measures:

We measure the length of the sleeve from the beginning of the sleeve to the line of the neck (to the armpit). Sleeve width in the lower, narrow part and width in the upper, widest

Next, count the number of rows corresponding to the length of the sleeve.

Now you need to determine the number of loops that are added to expand the sleeve. To do this, the number of loops in the narrowest part must be taken away from the number of loops in the widest part. Since we add loops on both sides of the sleeve, the resulting number is divided into two. To determine through how many rows you need to add loops, it is necessary to divide the number of rows that correspond to the length of the sleeve by the number obtained above. The resulting value will correspond to the number of rows through which the loops are added.

There is a pattern in the addition of loops – if the hands are long and thin, then the additions are made in every 6–8 row, for normal length and fullness, then in every 6th row, and if the hands are quite full and short, then we add in every 4th row.

We do the reduction as follows: at the beginning of the front row, the number of loops calculated earlier is closed and after knitting the row to the end, we turn the knitting and at the beginning of the next purse the same number of loops is closed and the row is knitted until the end. We repeat the same actions in the next front row, until only the loops of the last right and left group, right and left, remain on the spokes, then all the remaining loops are closed in one step.
