new seaming?
Jan has kindly replied to one of my questions today! Thank you Jan! Only one more small question: you mentioned "new seaming" for raglan sleeves. What exactly is new seaming? Thanks again...

I'm pretty sure she meant "NO" seaming, though raglan can be knit in pieces, though it is wonderful to knit in the round since there is NO seaming.

no seaming - got it!
Thanks Ingrid! Now if I did want to do raglan this way, do I need to sew the shoulder seams and side seams tog and then pick up sts from shoulder and knit in the round to wrist? (I am doing a turtle neck)

For a top down raglan, you don't do any sewing. CO stitches for the neck and knit till it's long enough, add a few more and allocate them (through the use of markers) for the sleeves, front and back. Increase until it fits you at the underarm, then put the sleeve stitches on holders, knit the body, then go back to finish the sleeves to the wrist.
