what the heck does this mean?
Hey all:
I am attempting the raglan sweater pattern onthis site, but can someone please please explain to me howthe heck you get 'ridges' on a garter stitch? It says to work even in garter stitch until there are 2 purl ridges, then knit the next row, and then do a buttonhole. Hey, here's an idea!! Can someone (or someones) look at the pattern and tell me what they mean and how I am supposed to get a full back of a sweater (ok, it's preemie sized, but come on! they are not fashion dolls!!lol) ?!?

Thanks again for all your help
Katy

Hi! Here's a picture... I hope it helps.

I outlined the knits and purls in blue and green, and put a blue box around a "ridge" . I hope it's clear!!! Sorry it's so small..... I ridge is basically 2 rows of garter.

Ok, I understand that, but how is it supposed to be a full back of a sweater if I am just knitting 4 rows before I do shoulder shaping?

well i started to post this and then my clients decided to start being demanding. I THINK that it is this pattern that she is talking about. At least it is what i got from her original post. Did i guess the right one?


Cast on 50 stitches.
Work even in garter st (knit each row) until 2 purl ridges on right side.
(RS) Button hole - k2, YO, k2tog, k across.
Knit next row.

SHOULDER SHAPING:

R1: (RS) K11, inc 1 , place mrk, inc 1, k4, inc 1, place mrk, inc 1, k13, inc 1, place mrk, inc 1, k4, inc 1, place mrk, inc 1, k10.
R2: K4, p across (slip mrks), to last 4 sts, k4
R3: k each stitch , inc one stitch before and after each marker, k to end.
Continue rows 2 and 3 until 10 purl ridges from first buttonhole.
Next row - k2, YO, k2tog, knit to first mrk, place stitches between first and second marker on a stitch holder.(sleeve) knit next stitches (back) to the next marker, place stitches between the next 2 markers on a stitch holder (other sleeve), knit next stitches
Next row (WS) k4, p across to last 4 sts, k4
Next row - k across.
Continue last 2 rows until 10 purl ridges from last buttonhole.
(RS) k2, YO, k2tog, k to end
Next rows - knit next 6 rows. Bind off.

SLEEVES

From stitch holder, pick up one side of stitches and put onto needle.
(RS)
R1: k
R2: p
Continue row 1 and 2 for 20 rows.
Knit next 6 rows. Bind off, leaving 12" of yarn to sew seam for sleeve.
Repeat for 2nd sleeve.

OKAY!!! This is a top-down raglan!

Those 4 rows are just the collar. Continue with the pattern as written, after the shoulder shaping you'll get into knitting the body. Just remember you're starting at the neck edge and knitting down, and it'll start to make sense.
