Neckline

Stitches in section: 924
Work all of this section in colour 1.

The neckline is worked back and forth for 16 rows, working raglan increases on right-side rows before and after each of the raglan markers, and at the same time increasing by 1 stitch after the first stitch, and 1 stitch before the final stitch, on rows 3, until you have 10 stitches at each end of your work.

Tip! Try it on


At this point, it's a great idea to try on your sweater. Put it on carefully, and close the front with safety pins (as if it was buttoned up). If your circular needle isn't long enough to allow the sweater to rest against your arms & body then move some stitches to a spare circular needle or to a piece of waste yarn. Try pinching the armpit points together so they meet under your arms. Bear in mind that you will be adding 5 stitches under each arm when you separate the sleeves, so they won't sit as tightly as they do now. If you think it's too tight, do a few more raglan increase rounds. If you think it's too big, step backwards by frogging a few rounds.

Separate sleeves

Stitches in section: 56

On the next right-side row (row 17), with colour C1: Knit to the first sleeve marker, remove the marker and put the sleeve stitches on a holder. Use the knitted cast-on method to cast on 2, place a marker, use the knitted cast-on method to cast on 3. Join up to the stitches on the other side of the sleeve stitches and keep knitting. Repeat in reverse when you reach the next sleeve: cast on 3, place a marker, then cast on 2. Knit to the end. (12, 32, 12)
