A set-in sleeve can be intimidating. If you don’t sew it in just right it looks SO wrong. Even after two decades of sweater knitting, it can take me several tries to get it sewn in perfectly. Set-in sleeves from the knit from the top down will rescue you from all of this. Pick up stitches around the armhole opening and work down. No sewing required. Best of all, you can use this technique in any set in sleeve sweater, whether the pattern is written that way or not.
