Good Old Raglan - English

0,00 DKK

This sweater is knit from the top and down in the round. The neck opening is shaped with short rows, and the armholes are shaped with raglan increases. Once the armholes have been shaped, stitches are removed and set aside for the sleeves to be knit later. The body is then completed in stocking stitch with a ribbed edge. The sleeves are then knit in the round and finished with a ribbed edge.

Gauge

22 stitches x 30 rows = 10 x 10 cm [4 x 4 inches] (in stocking stitch on a 4.00 mm [US6] needle).

Suggested needle size

4.00 mm [US6] circular needle for body, 4.00 mm [US6] circular needle or double-pointed needles for sleeves, 3.50 mm [US4] circular needle and/or double-pointed needles for ribbed edges. Make a swatch before you start knitting to ensure that your gauge is correct. Depending on how you knit, you may need to go up or down half a needle size to meet the gauge. Gauge in the suggested yarn is measured after washing and blocking of a swatch.
