raglan neck and armhole decrease
by: Ratchadawan

Dec. 1 st. at neck edge of next 6 rows, then on foll 2 alt. Rows, then on 0(0:0:1:1) foll. 4th row, and at same time, dec. 1 st at raglan armhole edge of 2nd and 1(0:0:0:0) foll 4th row, then on foll 2(4:4:6:6:) alt. rows. 2 sts.



Here is a simpler direction for your size;

Dec 1 sts at neck edge of the next 6 rows, then every other row 2 times. Then work even for 4 row. At the same time, dec 1 st at armhole edge on the 2nd row and work even 4 rows, then every other rows 4 times. 2 sts remain.

I made a chart for you and I will add it to the main question page for you to print. Some how I can't add photo in the comment!

Hope you'll get it work out!

Raglan sleeve
by: Norah

Hello Ratcha:

Your instructions worked out very well. Now I'm knitting the left side and don't understand the following:

Shaping neck edge...I have 15 stitches ( I am knitting second size inside brackets)

Dec. 1 st. at neck edge of next 6 rows, then on foll 2 alt. Rows, then on 0(0:0:1:1) foll. 4th row, and at same time, dec. 1 st at raglan armhole edge of 2nd and 1(0:0:0:0) foll 4th row, then on foll 2(4:4:6:6:) alt. rows. 2 sts. Wow, I've never been so confused!

Thank you, Norah

Many thanks. The pattern just had to be written differently for me as you did. I'm not there yet, but will let you know how it goes with your explanation and chart. You have a very informative site.....good work!

Raglan decreases

Hi Norah,

The best way to do this is to make a little chart for an easy reference. I like to chart it on a graph paper. You can find it for free online. It helps me see the direction much better.

I created a little chart here for you in the photo. Hope you can print it out. I didn't put number of each row because I don't want to create more confusion.

The chart shows where each decrease takes place. Start first dec on the next row and then do dec every 4th row for 8 times more. Then do dec every other row 12 times. (in the chart I only did decreases for 12 rows which is 6 times. You should do another 12 rows to complete them) That's pretty much cover all of your decreases for this part.

I hope you find this helpful and successfully complete your sweater which I'm sure you will have not trouble.

Enjoy the rest of your day!

Ratcha
