You have to remember that with raglan sweaters the sleeves are joined to the body at an angle, like so /...\, from underarm to shoulder which means that you will decrease at a steady rate as you carry on towards the neck.
Hope that helps!
yes yes it does help
this is the link to the pdf file.
scroll to the "child's placket neck pullover"
what im thinking is that if i do three more rounds (meaning four rounds of the decreasing and one round of the plain knit for each "round" ) then i am going to end up with a great raglan sweater i think, but nowhere for the neck placet
so when they say "repeat last two rounds," im not precicely sure what they mean by "last two rounds" is this a common language for aptterns to call a round a set of decreases that are actually FOUR rounds?
deacrease rnd: *ssk, slip marker, k1, k2tog, knit to within 2 stitches of next marker; repeat from * 3 more times -- 8 stitches decreased, 1 plain knit stitch between each set of paired decreases along raglan line. Knit 1 rnd even. Repeat the last two rounds
3 more times ending last round 28 stitches before end of round.... yoke measures about 1.25 inches above joining
i wish i knew someone in real life who could help me. i know this is such a pain to try and decipher on the net. i appreciate anyone who tries to help me.
