Hi y'all!

I am trying to decide whether or not to have the cap sleeves (which means I would cast off now) or continue knitting and make them 3/4 length. The original pattern calls for cap sleeves, but I am just not sure. Here are pics of me in the cap sleeves (its not finished yet, I took it off the needles and put it all on scrap yarn)



So what do you think? Does it look nice? Or terrible? Should I leave as cap or keep knitting and make 3/4 Huh

Opinions would help Smiley

Thanks

That's a tough one! It looks pretty cute with the cap sleeves. But it's so pretty, it might look even more striking with the longer sleeves. Sorry, guess I'm not much help! {laughing} Either way, you'll look great in it!

Wow, the pattern's gorgeous!
I'm not sure how well 3/4-length sleeves would work with the rest of the garment.  Maybe you should leave the sleeves on the scrap yarn for now, whilst you knit the body, and then it will be easier to decide, once the body is in it's final form?

I vote for 3/4 sleeves. Suppose you want to wear it over a top that's not a tank top? Whatever's under it, I think 3/4 would be sexier, and it would make for a more versitile garment.

I love that pattern and had been thinking about how I could modify it to have 3/4 sleeves. You'll look adorable in it either way. I can't wait to see your final result.

I vote for 3/4 , much more versatile, but that could be just because I have " dead bunny" upper arms!
