I knit this sweater, and while I wanted longer sleeves than most people like, they turned out too long even for me.
I'd like to shrink just the sleeves and I wonder if anyone has tips for doing that, or if this is the worst idea ever ever and I should just rip it from neckline to under the arm, shorten the sleeves and knit it back up again (which is what I want to do the least, but will if that's the only option.)
It was knit in pure wool which will shrink, but my intention isn't to felt it, if that's what will end up happening if I try shrinking the sleeves.
