Sleeve length

Where is the best place to measure your arm to decide if the given sleeve length is correct? I'm assuming it should stop around your underarm?

When trying to figure out the best fit for a sweater I'm knitting -- I usually measure a sweater I already own that I like the fit of.

That goes for any measurement of a sweater, not just the sleeves.

I got my mother to measure my arm for me. From under the arm to the cuff - since that is the meaurement used in this pattern to determine when to begin the raglan

Thanks Veronica, that's what I needed to remember (I have only done one other raglan sleeve).
