Joining Raglan sleeves

Hi there,

I have just completed all the pieces for a jumper and now ready to start the neckband but the pattern is saying JOIN BOTH FRONT AND RIGHT BACK RAGLAN SEAMS? I don’t understand this can someone help or share with me a video so I can complete my jumper?
Also how do you know the difference between the right raglan sleeve and the left one? I did not mark them once I had finished knitting them.

Congrats on getting all your pieces finished!

Often sleeves say “2 the same” or something like that, can you check on your pattern, there might not be a difference between the two sleeves.
There is more likely a difference on the body front and back although not always. Do you know which is your front piece and whichnyour back piece?

Join both front and right back
This is join BOTH sleeves to the front of the jumper.
Join RIGHT BACK, means only the right hand sleeve is sewn on to the back of the jumper. The right is as you wear it (not as you look at it), I always have to do a little flip around in my thinking at this stage.

You then have left sleeve joined to front, front body, right sleeved joined to front and joined to back, back body.
It leaves the neck open at the back left so that the neck line (ribbing or edging or whatever is there) can be knitted flat. After working the neckband you will sew up that last open part, the raglan and the neck.

Does this help?
Do you need a video how to do the sewing? Mattress stitch is good.
Here’s a video

Welcome to the forum!
What is the name of your pattern?

Thank you so much. I will try this tomorrow and get back to you.
