After finishing your neck edging, you start increasing to form the body of your sweater.
Round 1: KF&B twice, place a marker, KF&B, K3, KF&B, place a marker, KF&B of next 2 stitches, place a marker, KF&B, K3, KF&B. By the end of the round, you should have increased 8 stitches and have a total of 22 stitches on your needles.
Round 2: Knit
Round 3: KF&B, K2, KF&B, move marker, KF&B, K5, KF&B, move marker, KF&B, K2, KF&B, move marker, KF&B, K5, KF&B (30 stitches).

At this point you can separate the sleeves from the body or continue increasing until the top of the sweater is the size you want it to be.
To separate the sleeves from the body, knit 10 stitches and put them on a stitch holder (this is one sleeve), remove marker, knit 13 stitches, knit 10 stitches and put them on a stitch holder (this is the second sleeve), remove marker, knit 13 stitches. You should have 26 stitches on your needles, which forms the body of the sweater.
Knit the body of the sweater until it is as long as you want it to be. You can either immediately bind off for a sweater with a rolling hem, or knit 5 rows of edging to match the neckband and then bind off.
Move the 10 stitches that you put on a holder to your double pointed needles.
Pick up 1 stitch and knit the stitches till you get to the end of your row. Pick up another stitch.
Continue knitting in the round until the sleeve measures at least 1 ½ inches. Knit ½” of chosen edging and bind off. If want your sleeves to roll, continue knitting until the sleeve measures 2”. Bind off.
Repeat for the second sleeve.
Weave in ends.
