Canyonville Crash and Burn.

I am baffled.

I put this project aside because I knew there was a problem with the width of the sleeve. About a 6" problem as it turns out. Looking at the cuff, I find that it is 6" wide. Usually cuffs for adults are about 9.5 to 10 inches.

What was I thinking, then, when I continued on and knit on the second sleeve for about 9"?

This knitting cannot be salvaged, and all must be torn out.

I still want to work the project, so I will begin again with a new sleeve. Casting on 10" will go a long way towards having enough width at the end. The plan is still to modify the construction to make a knit-in-one-piece raglan.

Time to recalculate and cast on again.
