Thank you for the explanation. I also learned a bit more about this groovy, informational website today! I am planning to knit the Chic Cable Sweater that I got from Ravelry. It is a RedHeart pattern, very cute. I have always done raglan sleeves in the past, so I am a little nervous about sewing up a different kind of sleeve. It is good to know I can come here when I need help! Lisa
