Note: Sleeves are knit downward from armholes. With right side of work facing you, using straight needles, pick up and knit 60(60-64-68-72) stitches along armhole edge between pins. Note: To pick up and knit you will work with only 1 needle. Join yarn at first pin. Hold yarn in back of work. * Insert point of needle through the edge of armhole from right side; wrap yarn around needle as if to knit and pull through work to right side. This will leave you with 1 stitch on your needle. Repeat from * along entire edge of armhole to second pin, keeping stitches as evenly spaced as possible – 60(60-64-68-72) stitches. Work even in Stockinette Stitch for 1”, end when you have just finished a purl row. Knit 2 stitches together at beginning and end of the next row (2 stitches decreased). Repeat this decrease every 1 1/4(1 1/4-1-1- 3/4)” 14(14-16-16-18) times more – 30(30-30-34-34) stitches. Work even until sleeve measures 18”, end when you have just finished a purl row. Bind off all stitches. Repeat for second sleeve.
Optional Necklace: With crochet hook, make a chain 365” long. Fasten off. Fold chain in half, then in half again, forming 4 strands. Draw 4 strands up through one hole of button, then down through the other. Before drawing strands tight, slip all 8 strands through the loop between the 2 holes of the button, then pull tight. Try on necklace and knot ends in back of neck at desired length. Weave in ends.
