Ok Where's the Sleeves?

I don't see em in the pattern...or am I just not reading it correctly? I
like the sweater and it will make great Christmas gifts for my nieces.

Looks to me if you knit it from top downwards. The cast off stitches at the end of those 8 rows form the sleeves, then you carry on to knit the body. Just my view. Shirley

"At the beginning on the next 8 rows, bind of 5 (6) stitches."
= The sleeves are part of the whole, they're not knitted separately.

Ok just seems to me there should be more castoff stitches but the yarn is bulky so I will just have see what happens.
Thanks and good morning!

Five stitcehs at the beginning of the next eight rows - that means twenty stitches at each side. At that gauge it's a lot :-)

The sleeves are 3/4 length, so 10-12 inches would be enough. If you wanted more, CO for the larger size (or more), and BO more sts.
