Monday Mini Tip Tutorial - Shortening A Sleeve

My friend once knit a cardigan. First she was unhappy with the floppy fronts and I cut off the excess fabric for her and knitted on button bands. You can see what I did here. That was in 2013. Four years later (she asked me to do this last year but it took me a while to get around to it) she decided the sleeves were too long and too baggy at the bottom so I agreed to shorten the sleeves for her.

I get asked questions about how to do this fairly often so I recorded how I did it.

You can also watch it here. 

Here's the sleeve after I finished it. I wasn't able to get a modelled photo of my friend wearing it but she is happy with this cardigan now.

Please ask any questions you have in the comments below. You can see all the previous Monday Mini Tips and other tutorials on my Tutorials page.
