Sweater Alterations – Hemming Sleeves

If the ribbing on a sweater sleeve hem is not much narrower than the sleeve itself,  you can hem the sleeves by turning the ribbed edge inward. The hem stitch should be worked by hand (since the knit is bulky). Make a tailor’s hem (with little x’s) or use a backstitched hem so that the stitching will stretch.
