Knit Sleeve Band

Sleeve Band
The knit sleeve band, also known as a knit cuff, is something seen on sweatshirts, jackets and coats.  The purpose is to make the bottom of the sleeve more fitted but still is very comfortable to wear.  Typically, sleeve bands are made with a ribbed knit, which just means the knit has defined lines or ribs.  You’ll want these ribs to go parallel with the length of your arm.  This allows you to get the maximum stretch going around your wrist.  It’s actually really easy to add knit bands to the bottom of your sleeves, even if you don’t have a pattern.  This tutorial shows you what you need to know and gives you simple directions on creating your own knit sleeve bands.

Starting in 2009, the Professor Pincushion team had a vision of creating a sewing tutorial website in which beginners could learn and master the art of sewing. Our site launched in March of 2010 and we have since produced over a hundred sewing related tutorials that cover everything from sewing basics to fun and original projects. Regardless of the subject, we always strive to create HD quality videos that takes the viewer step by step through each process so that nothing is left out and the mystery behind learning to sew is revealed to all.
