a bottom up raglan is the same... it just is confusing..
right now you have 3 tubes (ok maybe the sleeves are flat, but you can imagine them sewn into tubes, and maybe its a cardigan, but again, imagine it buttoned up..)
000 (of course the middle tube is a lot bigger.. but tubes)
in one row you are going to join them... but
not quite.. the \/and /\ are the under arms..
you'll put some sleeve stitches (at the under arm) on a stitch holder or waste yarn,
some body stitches (at the under arm) on stitch holder or waste yarn
and then repeat with the second sleeve
Row/Round 2 of the yoke, you'll have 1 tube.
The beginning of round will likely be the BACK left sleeve "seam" (joint)
When you work top down, you put some stitches (a bunch) onto waste yarn(sleeve--to be knit latter) and cast on a few for underarm--(bottom up, the underarm stitches are often not cast off--but put on waste yarn and the underarm 'seam is grafted) (and repeat for the second sleeve
its really the same
Top Down you have 1 big tube.. (yoke)
which is divided into 3 tubes (2 sleeves, 1 body)
its just the sleeves get knit latter..
Bottom up, you have 3 tubes, (2 sleeves and body) that get joined into 1 big tube-Yoke (with a few on waste yarn or cast off for underarm)
think about it for a minute, re-read the directions.. and wait for the light to come on... its easier than you realize!
