Fitted sleeve sizing

Blocks for fitted sleeve garments - standard measurements - devised by Kathleen Kinder


For an accurate individual fit it is important to take exact measurements for the points shown and use those to calculate the rows and stitches from your tension swatch.

NB The true underarm seam measurement is WQP not JST
