View Full Version : Pattern Help Needed... Average # Rows for Raglan Sleeve Hole?

09-24-2007, 02:04 PM
I've been scouring raglan sleeve patterns TRYING to determine about how many rows seems to be "average" for various sizes. All the patterns I've found merely state to knit until ~so many inches. I'm running behind the 8 ball here and am looking for just a general number of rows that one puts on the needles in a top-town, knit in one piece raglan before splitting off the sleeves and finishing the project.:??

Can ANYONE help me???? Pretty please??? I'm BEGGING!!!:pray:

It depends on how many rows per inch. This is why row gauge is not as important as stitch gauge in a pattern; most of them have you work X inches. When doing top down raglans, you increase until it fits the person and that is so variable that it has to be measured in inches.

Okay, I think, armed with that info, I can figure out about how many rows I'm going to have to do on this baby. THANK YOU for explaining that to me.:muah:
