Note: Needle size is just a suggestion. Adjust needle size if needed to obtain gauge! Pay extra attention to your gauge when working the sleeves. Many knitters tend to have a tighter gauge when working small circumferences. If this happens to you, you will have to go up a needle size when knitting the sleeves!
