Thank you, thank you, thank you for giving instructions to alter to fit to size. This is the perfect cover-up for those slightly sagging upper arms that suddenly (?) appear in middle age. However, the definition of 'shell' in Row 6 of the sleeve directions seems to be missing.

Correction: Shell Stitch--5 dc in st

Please let me know if you have any questions!
