Note: If you still need a size other than what is shown in the Lace/light fingering weight yarn. The pattern is in a multiple of 35 (this is the skull pattern), if you try to make a larger size other than shown here keep in mind that you may need to add a few extra rounds of the Evenrounds (these are just the rounds of 3dc, ch2).

Use a st marker if you need to, place it in the ch2 sp you just found for your center between the skulls, (see pic below the black arrow)

You will then count to the right 4 ch2 spaces after the stitch marker, in the 4th ch2 space is where you will join your yarn and Continue as follows:

Round 1: ch3, 2dc in the same sp, ch2, *in the next ch sp make 3dc, ch2* repeat from *to* around, sl st with the first ch3.
You will want to fold your sleeve in half and find the center (ch2, 3dc, ch3) at the underarm edge. Place a stitch marker in the first ch2 sp (see pic below) and work your next round as follows until you reach the stitch marker.


Place Stitch Marker
Round 2: sl st your way across the dc until you reach the first ch2 space, ch3, 2dc in the same sp, ch2* 3dc in next ch sp, ch2* repeat from *to* across until you reach the stitch marker, work 1dc in the ch2 sp, sk a dc, dc in the next dc, dc in the next ch2 sp, ch2, repeat from *to* until you reach the ch3 from the beginning of the round, sl st with the first ch3.
Round 3: sl st your way across the dc until you reach the first ch2 space, ch3, 2dc in the same sp, ch2* 3dc in next ch sp, ch2* repeat from *to* across, sl st with the first ch3.
Round 4-11 (4-15): Repeat Rounds 2-3

You want the next rounds to reach just past your elbow. If the rows below don’t reach that far just add more rounds then skip to the bell part of the sleeve.
Rounds 12-19 (4-23): Repeat Round 3.


Bell Part of the Sleeve:
Grab 2 stitch markers and fold your sleeve in half, place your stitch markers in the ch2 spaces on either side of the sleeve.
Round 1: sl st your way across the dc until you reach the first ch 2 sp, ch3, 2dc in the same sp, ch2, * 3dc in next ch sp, ch2* repeat from *to* until you reach the first st marker, in that ch2 sp make 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, place the stitch marker in the middle of the increase in the ch2 sp, repeat from *to* until you reach the second st marker, in that ch2 sp make 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, place the stitch marker in the middle of the increase in the ch2 sp, then repeat from *to* until you reach the first ch3, sl st with it.

Round 3: sl st your way across the dc until you reach the first ch2 sp, ch3, 2dc in same sp, ch2, *work 3dc in the next ch sp, ch2* repeat from *to* until you reach the first st marker, in that ch2 sp (see pic below) make 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, then repeat from *to* until you reach the 2nd st marker, in the ch2 sp make 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, repeat from *to* until you reach the first ch3, sl st with the top of it.


You will want to repeat Rounds 2 and 3 until you reach the desired width you want your bell to be, if it happens to be the desired length too then you can fasten off now and repeat for the other sleeve. If you need your sleeve to be longer then you will want to work Round 2 until you reach the desired length. Fasten off and repeat the exact same thing for your second sleeve. Hide all loose tails and you are done.
