Below is the shape I designed which I use on all my set in sleeve sweaters, either handknit or machine knit. Below that is a picture of a hand knit I used this sleeve on and in the post below that is a machine knit.

I really like this sleeve head. It fits & flatters, will have to try for myself. Thanks for the schematic. You are so very inspiring in many ways.

Thanks Colin this is good information this is the sleeve I am always looking for as it is like the one we used to put in when I worked in the factory in Scotland that was ages ago they were expensive and classic but could never find a pattern for it, do you figure out your size from the cap sleeve and adjust it, decrease two sts at a time and four rows up to the top of the sleeve then knit straight? Keep on knitting Colin it kind of takes your mind of your health problems and of course you lovely dogs keep you busy to.

Thank you so much for that, Colin. As usual, I enjoyed your pup chat,

As always, your sweaters look so absolutely great. To this, I aspire.

Hi Colin, That's a very well fitting sleeve head, I have a particular dislike of dropped shoulders so thanks for sharing the diagram with us, I will try it out when I start knitting the "winter wollies".

As usual, so professional! I love that sleeve and will try that on my next adventure. Hope all is well and you are feeling better.

Hi, Colin.

Beautiful sweater! Thanks so much for sharing the schematic. I don't quite understand the numbers of 7:0, 22:74, and 93:0. Does that have to do with stitches and rows?

By the way, I received an e-mail from you requesting "e-mail authorization". Is that really true, or is it a spam or virus? It was a couple of months ago that a virus when through the "knitting machine" group on Yahoo.

Thanks for your response.
