Knitqueen can you help me one more time with the Raglan sleeve?
First question is, if my needles are long enough to hold all of the sts, is it necessary for me to use circular needles?
Next question: After I place all sts on the needle, my instructions say: DEC ROW (RS) *
k to within 2 sts of next marker, k2tog tbl, slip marker, ktog; rep from *
across all markers, k to end - 8 sts dec. NEXT ROW (WS)
- Purl. Rep the last 2 rows
12 times more - 63 sts. AT SAME TIME, when armhole measures 2 1/2", shape neck as foll: Cont with raglan shaping, after working first 4 sts at beg of next 2 rows, place them on holders, then dec 1 st at beg & end of every RS row (neck edges) 2 times. On last WS row, p2tog before & after each marker. Slip rem 43 sts on holder.
When I do the dec rows
, aren't my fronts, back & sleeves supposed to be closing together? If so, I am doing something wrong because they are not being closed.
Also, I am assuming on the NEXT ROW
where it says Purl. Rep the last 2 rows ...... it means to repeat the DEC ROW & NEXT ROW
