In the Gibraltar Henley, sleeves are worked right onto the body of the sweater. Stitches are picked up around the armhole, and the set-in cap shaping is achieved with short-rows. Below the underarm, the sleeve is worked in the round to the cuff. This design gives you the fit of a set-in, without the seaming.
