1  Re: *Need help altering sleeve patterns for big upper arms* in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by givemegrace on: June 20, 2010 09:10:31 PM
I have a Better Homes & Gardens sewing book from 1961 that shows how to do this, but my camera died.   Undecided

Here is a quick drawing: 

To make the sleeve bigger, just slash through the center and spread.  Take darts from the slash to the cap to make it lie flat.  The darts just taper off and keep the armhole the same size.  This can be done on short or long sleeves!

Also, I found this link to a blog, which might be helpful.  She uses a different method. 

I hope this helps you out!  I haven't tried either method, so let me know.  Smiley

2  Sears Afghan and Sweater Collection (Knit and Crochet) in Vintage Craft Projects by givemegrace on: March 19, 2007 06:20:06 AM
I found this book at my local Salvation Army Thrift Store for a quarter!
It took me ages, but I scanned each and every page.

Click the photo to go to the web page with the scans.  Smiley

{EDIT-- Working to transfer photos to another page because I went over my bandwith limit. If the web page is not working, go to this URL:  http://s163.photobucket.com/albums/t312/gatsbysgreenlight/ }

When I first looked at the scarf, I really didn't like it.  It grew on me, though!  Took me one afternoon and one evening to finish.

I used Wool-Ease in White Frost because it was sort of glittery.  I think you can see the shimmery bits in the photos.
