Help please with raglan baby sweater

Hi, Join the sleeves to the back and fronts, this video will help show you how


When both sleeves are attached to the back and fronts you will then need to do the border edges by picking up and knitting the amount of stitches indicated for the size you are making from the bottom edge of the right front all the way up and across the back then all the way down the left side, this video will show you how to do this

Then you will just need to close the sleeve seams and side seams, add buttons(if this is indicated) and you’re done :grinning:

Thank you so much! I think I just became overwhelmed as it seemed so complicated.
