this is fabulous, I abandoned my rebel cardi because I didn't like the short sleeves. Can you tell me what stitch you made the sleeves with please and how you did it, it looks wonderful thanks Wendy

I used a Double crochet stitch(double US stitch - Treble UK). I found a jumper I liked, took the stitch count from it, the added a couple of broomstick lace rows to form the cuff.

thanks Helga you have inspired me to go back to mine and re-do the sleeves

So glad you're picking up your project again, it is worth the effort. We live in Northern Ireland where summer lasts 3 days lol, so long sleeves are essential. ;-)

Thanks for this. You pass your weather on to us on the Scottish West Coast so the short sleeves were putting me off a bit too!
