Love this lace pattern it’s turning out so pretty and is fun to knit. I love how the sizes are colour coded this was great especially when working straight from the computer screen. Love the short or long sleeve options. However the instructions for this pattern are confusing and take a lot of concentration, When separating on Rnd 16, when it says to work next 51 after seperating for 1st sleeve, it’s not knit the nxt 51 sts it’s have 51 sts worked before the next lot of sleeve sts need to be slipped onto a holder.

Separated at Row 16 for underarms
Right Under Arm = Picked up 1 st in first lace pattern under arm then 5 sts along reverse stocking stitch then 3 sts in next lace pattern. Knit one stitch from sleeve stitches then contiue in Round 5 lace sleeve pattern, Making this 1st purl your beginning of round, when you reach 9 p/up stitches purl 7 k1 yo k2tog, round finished. As I was using a 4mm 80cm circular needle to work in a magic ring Once I had completed this first round I spilt my stitches more evenly with the split being in the middle of a reverse stocking stitch part to avoid any ladders.
Rnd 6 lace sleeve pattern, p2tog either side of underarm reverse stocking st.
Sleeve length, Repeat lace pattern once, then through to rnd 4 measure 4.5cm
Begin Cuff, starting with a purl rnd.sleeve stitches

Left Under arm: Knit 1 yo k2tog from sleeve stitches next purl is beginning of round. Continue as for left arm

Bribed with cupcakes for photos :)
