If you are using a gradient yarn, take a length of yarn about 2ft and put it aside. You will do this now so your seem will be seamless.
To make the sleeve you will begin at the bottom of your armhole opening you will be counting 11 3dc clusters, join your yarn with a sl st in the ch1sp after the 11th cluster,
Row 1: ch3, in the same sp make 2 more dc, ch1, in every ch sp from previous round you will make 3dc, ch1 around
Rows 2-11: Turn your work, sl st over the next 3 dc, and sl st in the ch1 sp, ch3, in the same sp make 2 more dc, ch1, in every ch sp from previous round you will make 3dc, ch1.
You will now begin working in the round DO NOT turn your work. Refer to the Video Tutorial at the 9:29 minute mark for help.
Round 12: ch1, sk the first 3 dc from the beginning of row 11, in the ch1 sp make 3dc, place a st marker in the ch1 you made before the 3dc, ch1, 3 dc in ch sp, repeat your pattern till you meet the ch1 with your st marker,
Round 13: remove your st marker and make 3dc in the ch1, place your st marker back in the middle dc, (remember to move the marker up with each new round. Your st marker will be in a ch1 or middle dc every other round) ch1, 3 dc in next ch1 sp, repeat around to the st marker,
Round 14: ch1, 3dc in ch1 sp, repeat around till you are back at the st marker which is in the first ch1. Round 15-22: Repeat rounds 13-14
If you want you can stop here for a 3⁄4 length sleeve or you can continue with Rounds 13-14 until you reach the length you want for a straight sleeve.

When you are done you will sl st in the beginning of the ch1 sp of the last round you have just made.

Fasten off and sew in loose tails in the wrong side of your work.
Now take your scap length of yarn and you will begin to sew the opening of your sleeve. Refer to
Video Tutorial at the 19:44 minute mark for more help.
With your sleeve wrong side out, you will begin with the first row of your sleeve, picking up the left and right sides of the cluster at the top of the dc and sew in that space, you are trying to recreate that ch1 sp so you only want to sew the top of the cluster together not the whole dc. You will weave your yarn up one side of the dc to the top of the next rows cluster picking up the top of the other side and stitching it closed, repeat that all the way up the opening of the sleeve, Hide all your loose tails.
Repeat the sleeve pattern for the second sleeve. Making sure if you are using a gradient yarn to leave a 2 ft strand from the beginning of your yarn to sew the opening closed for the second sleeve.
