Yarn substitution:
I wanted the bell shaped sleeves to have a nice drape instead of hanging too stiff, that’s why I choose this yarn and went up one needle size. I suggest you pick a yarn with a natural drape like angora, mohair or if you rather make it a summer sweater try a cotton mix with bamboo or silk. Don’t forget to make a swatch and see if you do get that drapey look.
