How do you set a seamlessly sleeve in knitting?
Simultaneous set-in sleeves use a visual trick to work. You knit the sweater body from the bottom up, to the base of the armhole. Then you put the body aside and make both sleeves, again stopping at the base of the armhole. Then you join all these pieces in what the pattern calls a yoke.
How do you sew a perfect sleeve?
- With right sides together, pin the sleeve into the armholes, matching the notches as you go. Sew together with sleeve side up.
- Press the seam open, then press the seam towards the sleeve (away from the body).
- Matching up the underarm seams, pin and sew the side seams and the sleeve seams together.
How do you top down a sleeve in knitting?

Continue working back on the right side at the top of the sleeve until two stitches past Marker Three, which is the wrapped stitch from the previous row.
