How to match a raglan sleeve to the body of the sweater
the back is on the left, the sleeve on the right
Back: After knitting 128 Sts in pattern for 16.5 inches(incl ribbing) I casted off 6 Sts at the beg of the next 2 rows then decreased 2 stitches every 2nd row until 62 Sts remained and then decreased 2 stitches every row until 40 Sts remained).
Sleeve: After knitting 90 Sts in pattern for 17 inches(incl the ribbing), the instructions are: cast off 6 Sts at the beg of the next 2 rows -then work raglan to match Back length leaving 12 Sts at top of sleeve
I did the decreases of 2 stitches every 2nd row until 62 Sts remained and then decreased 2 stitches every row until reaching the required 12 Sts. BUT the back’s raglan’s edge is 3 inches longer than the sleeve’s raglan edge.
So I know I have redo the sleeve but the question is how/where do I lengthen the raglan on the sleeve? It seems like if I make the sleeve any longer it will be up to my ears!!!
