Made this jersey but the sleeves looked to short for me. So i am busy doing another one and playing around with the sleeves.. :oops:

The pattern can be found here :

Your sweater looks very nice. You chose a great color. Sleeves can be any length. On a wee ones sweater I tend to make the sleeve the same length as the body.

Love your sweater and the colors you choose, what yarn is that you used.

If you want the sleeves longer just continue knitting to the length you want. Just remember to stop knitting before the finished length with the cuff. I usually knit to 2 inches less then the finished length I want.

Baby clothes are tricky, I know what you mean, but I think its beautiful and will be just fine. Your color choice is lovely.

I like it. I knit kid's sweaters for a charity. I make the cuff on the sleeves about 4 inches. This way as the child grows, the sleeves will still be long enough.

I recently finished a Baby Surprise Jacket by Elizabeth Zimmerman, and added a ribbed cuff long enough to be folded.

This is a lovely sweater. I agree that sleeves can be whatever length you want but for baby sweaters usually make the sleeve the same length as the body.
