Some have reported that the sleeves are coming out too small, particularly in the smaller sizes.  If you're considering knitting yourself a Rocky Coast, be sure to consider the schematic which gives very detailed measurements of the entire cardigan, including sleeve circumference.  Here is a note from my technical editor:

If you determine that the sleeve circumference is too small, you have two options: add more sts at the neckline or lengthen the yoke by doing increases on the sleeves only once the body circumference has been reached. Since this design features a wide neckline, adding more sts to the neckline may result in a neckline that is too wide. Thus it would be better to lengthen the yoke by two increase rows (increases worked on the sleeves ONLY) for each additional inch of ease desired. Note that the sleeve length may need to be adjusted accordingly.

Thanks for all your support this year, knitters!
