Apple Strudel, Yarn Forward Magazine, No. 7.

An added note for working the Raglan Shaping:

Repeat rows 1 and 2 until yoke fits under the arms OR until 68 (72, 76, 80, 86, 90, 94, 100, 104, 108, 112, 118) st between markers for Back section.

Bear in mind that if you change the depth of the yoke, it will change the number of stitches available to you for the sleeves. If you want to change the yoke, you can either aim for the number of sleeve stitches for the next size up or down (depending on whether you want to deepen or shorten the yoke), or make a note of the difference between the number of sleeve stitches you have and the number specified. Then, either throw in an extra decrease round or two as you go, or miss out some decrease rounds, to achieve the desired number for the cuff.

Corrections for Sleeves:

Using DPNs or a short circular needle, pick up sleeve st from waste yarn.
You should have 48 (52, 56, 60, 66, 70, 74, 80, 84, 88, 92, 98) st, unless you shortened or lengthened the yoke. If you did, see note under Raglan Shaping.

Pm to mark beg of round at centre of underarm. Begin sleeve decreases as follows:

Work 0 (0, 0, 0, 7, 7, 7, 0, 8, 8, 0, 11) extra rounds plain. This is to bring the sleeve to the correct length for your size, where the number of deceases necessary didn’t divide easily into the number of rows available.

Where you don’t have to work these extra plain rounds, please start the sleeve decreases with the relevant number of plain rounds before working the decrease round as opposed to starting with the decrease round.

Decrease round is worked thus: K2tog, k to 2 st before m, ssk, sl m.

Work decrease round 7 (7, 9, 9, 12, 12, 14, 15, 17, 17, 19, 20) times every 13h (13th, 10th, 10th, 7th, 7th, 6th, 6th, 5th, 5th, 5th, 4th) row.

34 (38, 38, 42, 42, 46, 46, 50, 50, 54, 54, 58) st rem for cuff.
