Linane top ja varruka jutt jälle/Linen top and talking about sleeves again

Eelkõige näitan toppi, mille pildistasime nädalavahetusel. Ave, tänan piltide eest!
First of all, I am going to show the top we got photographed this weekend. Ave, thanks for the pictures!
Lõng/Yarn: SIŪLAS Lithuanian linen (100 g/500 m), ~ 100 g.
Vardad/Needles: 2,5 mm
Ravelry
Teiseks, näitan, mis on praegu töös. Mulle meeldib see lõng, keeruga silmused on hästi reljeefsed.
Second, this is what I am currently working on. I like the yarn and twisted stitches have a good definition.

Muidu kõik on lihtne ja selge, aga varrukaga suhtes ei olnud kindel. Minu arust on üks mustrikord keskel täiesti piisav, ei pea igat ruutmillimeetrit katma mustriga iga hinna eest. Aga mida teha ülejäänud pinnaga? Alguses mõtlesin, et teen keeruga parempidiseid, vaheldan pahempidistega, sisuliselt keeruga soonik. Aga ei olnud ilus, soonik hakkas domineerima ja tekkis küsimus, mida muster seal keskel teeb. Siis mõtlesin, et võiks olla keeruga soonik ilma mustrita. Ei olnud päris võimatu, aga sellest on natuke vähe. Seejärel taipasin, et kõige lihtsam lahendus on antud juhul kõige õigem: ülejäänud pind olgu labases pahempidises koes. Nagu Ave ütles ükskord, labane pahempidine ei näe välja juhuslik stiilis "täidame vaba ruumi millegagi". Pahempidisel taustal on keeruga silmused nähtavad. Muster on ka nähtav. Nüüd tundub, et on õige lahendus.
Everything was easy and clear but I was not sure about the sleeves. I believe one pattern repeat in the middle is quite sufficient, you do not have to cover every square millimetre with a stitch pattern at any cost. But what should be done to the rest of the fabric? At first I planned to make twisted knit stitches and to alternate them with purl stitches, that is, a kind of twisted rib. But it did not look right; the rib stood out too much and it became problematic what the stitch pattern was doing amidst this rib. Then I thought I could have twisted rib without the stitch pattern. It did not look totally impossible but that is not enough. Then I realized that the simplest solution was the most appropriate one in this case: the rest of the fabric should be in reverse stockinette. As Ave rendered it once, reverse stockinette does not look as an accident in the style "let us fill the space with anything". Twisted stitches are visible against the reverse stockinette background. The sitch pattern is visible as well. Now it looks like a right solution.
