Before You Begin
It's easiest to knit two at a time sleeves on a set of long circular needles. To get started, you will need two balls of yarn, one for each sleeve.
It's also helpful to have some thin waste yarn that can be used as lifelines. This isn't just to help you if you make a mistake. Placing through your stitches every few inches also helps keeps the sleeves close to each other as you work and prevents them from flipping around on your needles.
MaterialsThanks to Skacel for providing the HiKoo Sueño Worsted yarn and the addi Click bamboo tip interchangeable needles with SOS cords used in this tutorial. These products are available locally at many yarn shops and online at Makers' Mercantile.
