Question about lengthening the sleeves...

I'm going to need to lengthen my sleeves by at least 2"... maybe 3"... that would be 12 - 18 extra rows.

What is the best way to do so... should I just add it to the work even section after all the increases are done, or should I work it into the increases. Maybe changing the every 8 rows part to every 10 rows (for the size I'm doing, that would equal 18 extra rows)?

The size I'm making (36/37) calls for increases every 10 and every 12 rows. To lengthen I just made more of my increases every 12 rows. Then holding it up to my arm after I got that far I wanted it just a smidge longer so I knit a few more rows at the straight part before the armhole bindoffs.

i knit my sleeves even for another four inches (i have looong arms) after completing the increases. i was worried that if i continued the increases the seams wouldn't match up when i sewed the pieces together. it seems to work for others though so i guess it's your choice. happy knitting!
