Recently I am obsess about puff sleeve..I turn the Wicked sweater into puff sleeve Wicked. It take me quite awhile to finish this sweater because:
First, I did a wrong size.
Second, wrong gauge( didnt swatch).
Thirdly, added 4 sts on each underarm( trying to avoid the hole)

..so end up I redo the 3/4 of body part twice and I have to decrease about 40 sts right from underarm just to make it fitted.  As for the puff sleeve, I just add 2 sts every 3 row until it puff enough and do a sudden decrease.

I love it, you did a great job.

Extra cute with a belt and  I bet it looks awsome paired with a classy black skirt too.  Smiley

High five!

Lovely, the sleeves are super - puffy sleeves are great! I agree with whoever said it would look fab with a black skirt.

That turned out SO WELL!  It was worth the extra time!  I like it much better than the original pattern, which somehow looked unbalanced to me.  This version I might make.....

What kind of yarn did you use?

Thanks for sharing!
