The pink yarn shows where I'm going to cut for the sleeve steek and the pin shows the terminus of the cut. I didn't bother trying to avoid the 'jog' in the pattern as the cut would abut the sleeve anyway.
Here, I've folded back the two cut edges. You can see the sewing machine stitching two stitches in from the cut and on either side of the pink yarn line. (click on photo to enlarge)
I look like a linebacker in drop shoulder sweaters but Skip was napping when I wanted to take the final photos.
I still need to weave in the many yarn ends and sew the official patch on the left sleeve. There will be more pics to follow with the proud owner modeling it.
Good news! We received our invitation for the traditional Swedish Christmas Eve party at our friends' place so Skip will be able to wear his sweater there.
I have two other Dale of Norway pattern books. This one from the Vancouver Olympics.
And this one commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Norwegian Ski Association.
