Hi Amy!, Thanks for the message. I started the whole thing again and even bought new yarn. I am much happier with the new lot. I am knitting the Large size and knitted the rib on size 4mm needles.

So I'm wondering if I would find it easy enough to modify this pattern (keeping in mind I'm a new knitter!) so that the sleeves end above the elbows, or are very baggy and loose around them.
