Did you have an issue with the sleeves? I know I'm tall and have long orangutan arms but...
The way this swoncho is designed, the arm holes hit just above the elbow and the directions say you should make the arms seven inches long. In other words, the pattern thinks the distance between my elbow and wrist should be seven inches. Nope! Mine measures a tad over eleven inches.
Another oddity about the arms on this sweater/poncho/swoncho... I'm knitting the size 2 so my arms are 78 stitches. If I was knitting socks with this same yarn, I'd knit on 48 - 54 stitches for the legs. And my legs are Much fatter than my wrists and still somewhat fatter than my forearms. Knowing this and the fact that I don't like my sleeves to be too loose, I went down a couple of needle sizes for the arm ribbing. After knitting about five inches I tried it on and... I could barely get my arms through the sleeves! The ribbing was all stretched out funnily.
I ripped that ribbing out and reknit it with the correct needle size and... It fits perfectly. How is that possible??
I just measured my forearms and my calves with a tape measure. It's quite possible that my arms are fat. My forearms measure a full inch bigger around than my calves.
In the infamous words of my mother, "Dammit all to Hell!"
Fat arms or not, this sleeve will be done before bedtime and other sleeve should be finished within a day or two. The end is in sight!
