Hello my name is Sabrina and I have been trying to complete this project for some time now. Can anyone walk me through the sleeve part of the sweater? I understand the part about working the first 4 rows in pat as for Back, and the 2 sc at the beg and end of the 1st row, but I don't understand the rest of it. Can someone help me with it please? I did a copy and paste so you can see the sts that I have been working throughout the pattern. Thanks a bunch!
