The sleeves on the Saturday Night Sweater are half-length and are finished with a tight rib at the elbow, which makes the sleeve have a slightly puffed shape.
The Saturday Night Sweater is knit holding four strands of silk mohair together – the easiest is to knit from both ends of two balls of yarn at the same time.
