Garnstudio DROPS Loves You 4

I was a bit confused about how to put the stitches between the 1st and 2nd marker on a stitch holder.
I am not sure if I did it correct, because on that round there is a spot with a double row of knit stitches (nothing I couldn’t fix).

Worked sleeves in the round and bind off with a Russian bind off to make it extra stretchy and so the beginning of the sleeves would fit better on the body part.
Knitted the sleeves in stockinette, with a ridge of 4 garter stitches. I put the ‘purl-side’ of the sleeve on the outside, fits perfect with the sweater without the ‘heaviness’ of a garter stitch.

I think the sweater could be a little bit longer in total. Maybe it will become a bit longer while wearing. I think it is because I used the Drops Loves You yarn instead of a cotton blend.
