 I'm knitting a jumper and I have to design the sleeve (unless recipient decides she wants a vest instead, her latest fancy)

Anyway, I collected some links.

Handy guide to writing an excel spreadsheet to work out the sleeve pattern 

I haven't looked hard enough at the spreadsheet to see if this might be a more straightforward way to do the sleeve pattern calcs.  

Or I could avoid the entire issue and use this calculator instead.

Huh. I always decrease every 5th round for a standard jumper with fairly fitted sleeves, or every 6th for a looser sleeve, and it seems to work fine. I think I picked that up from Elizabeth Zimmermann. (YMMV for weird yarns, complex stitch patterns, etc.)
