I added width to the sleeves of this sweater in the method I mentioned in my post to your blog concerning a too skinny knit-in-the-round sweater. You'll have far more room to work with than I did with the sleeve...but you can see the finished effect: It makes a nice accent.

If anyone is interested, this sweater was knit with Reynolds One ply Candide (discontinued, but similar to Jamieson's one ply) knit double with Plymouth brand sport weight Natural Indecita Alpaca. The accent is Brunswick ballybrae tweed. The sweater is over 20 years old, and as you can see, has worn beautifully: It's one of my favorites.

I like the sweater. You're

I like the sweater. You're right, it does give it a sporty look, and with a miniature version of the pattern, would work quite nicely.
