Hello, again! I have some questions about the fit of the arms. Right now I'm working on Rusted Root by Zephyr, which is my first sweater. I've only been knitting for 7 months, so I'm a little bit afraid to start the TYC since it looks so challenging. I checked the measurements of the TYC against my favorite store bought cardigan, and I have some concerns about the fit of the arm.
Armhole (armscye) on the TYC is 12.25 inches / my cardigan is 16". And my arm measures about 12" all by itself, so I'm worried that the armhole will be too small or that it will really stress those stitches with a lot of pulling.
Wrist cuff circumference on the TYC is 9.5 inches / my cardigan is 6". My own wrist is 6" around. So why is the cuff on the TYC so much bigger?
Maybe those who've already knit and attached the arm can clue me in on why the wrist is so large and the armscye so small?
