Help with seamless yoke sweater percentage system

I've read from the post from Jan 13 here that there is an updated version of EZ's percentage system. Instead of 3 times decrease 33%, you do 1st-25%, 2nd-33%, 3rd-40%. Also 8% is too tight (then what it should be?). Ans that sleeves are jenerally too wide (again-how wide they should be to be slim?)
Is there something else that I'm missing? I'm working on it now (as you know already--see my disaster below) and want my sweater to be perfect).
P.S. Update--I've redone the body already and begun the first sleeve)



  • in my opinion 33 is a fairly slim fitting sleeve. but what looks good depends on the weight of the yarn as well. i think a worsted weight yarn calls for a wider sleeve than and babyweight. i knit a seamless hybrid and went for 38 for the sleeves. they are fairly snug for the arm they were knit for. but this arm has refurbished a house and done masonry for a long time.....
