    Love the look of this. Can the sleeves also be done flat and then sewn on as still not confident about getting a straight seam, rather than one that spirals round my arm. Also could rib be used at the end of each arm and at the bottom of the jumper. It is just a personal preference but I do like ribbed cuffs to finish a garment.
    Thanks for the great pattern
