3 Methods for Adjusting Sleeve Lengths

One of the more common questions from knitters is "How can I shorten/lengthen tapered sleeves?"  I've heard hand knitters say that they just "fudge" the increases as they go, but I've often wondered how they get both sleeves the same.... (silly me).

If "fudging" isn't your idea of fun, here are 3 ways to get perfectly shaped sleeves that are the right length for you.
