Saw the photos, intresting problem.....
I belive in making the sleeves to fit my arms, whatever the size calls for, it doesn't matter. Your arms need to be comfy.

I reccomend going back and increasing the yoke a bit more, that should help with the tightness of the sleeves, by giving you more stitshes to work with. Then try it on again. If you choose to you can only increase on the arm side, and not in the chest area, that way you don't have to worry about changing the way it fits across the chest if you are happy with that. Or if it is too loose, go back farther and stop increasing on the chest side farther up, that should eliminate that bulging bit.

Also, consider some arm shaping after the elbow, it is a step that I will be doing on my next Wicked as I found the arms were too wide at the wrist.

Hope that helps! Can't wait to see it done it is such a nice colour!

I'm still working on mine, sort of...

Started in February of 07 and zipped right along to just above the hip area. I'd tried it on at the underarms and it seemed fine. When I tried it on for length at the hip, it was obvious the whole thing was too big. (What's new, I see from the thread that too-big Wickeds are fairly common.) It was too painful to deal with then so I stuffed it into the knitting closet.

One year later, I've pulled it out and was able to rip it without too much angst. The gauge was off, the dimensions were off, and it really was too big. I'll be starting over soon. Sure is great to be able to read through 29 *pages* of tips and comments before getting back into it.
