Notes

Decided I needed a cropped smaller version to wear with dresses and skirts

Started the cast-on with just 108 stitches as for the Rose Tee » and increased to 135 like given in that pattern, then to 146 stitches after the ribbing.

I am not quite sure how I will do the striping - I plan to do a fair bit in plain blue for a start.

September 1, 2021

Finished! Used my last vacation days at home to knit one sleeve per day… ;-) Did 14 blue stripes per sleeve and decreased to 62 stitches, doing 9 rows of ribbing for the cuff and then did a single crochet bind-off as the 10th row.

Really love how it turned out, love how the colours play with each other, Used up nearly all the yarn, have about 5 gramms left of the darkest brown and about 10 gramms of the lightest blue.
