Good evening all - hope you’re all well.
Thank you for accepting me into the KH community.
I am currently trying to finish my first raglan sleeve and I am having a slight bit of trouble.
The pattern is as follows:
1st Row: (RS) k2 *P1, K1, rep from * to last st, K1.
2nd Row: K1 *P1, K1, rep from * to end.
Repeat first and second rows until work measures 2cm from beg, ending with a second row.
Working in pattern as for Back and working extra stitches into patter, inc one st at each end of 3rd row, then in every following 4th row until there are 67 sts, then in every 6th row until there are 69 stitches.
Continue in pattern without shaping until work measures 34cm from beg, ending with a second row.
1st Row (RS): K6, sl 1, K2tog, psso, knit to last 9 sts, K3tog, K6, thus dec 4 sts…65 sts
2nd Row: P1, *K1, P1, rep from * to end.
Keeping pattern correct, continue decreasing 2 sts (as before) at each end of 3rd row, then in every following 4th row until 25 sts remain.
What I am having trouble with is the “keeping pattern correct”. As we know a raglan is very distinctive. Unfortunately, it would appear my every 4th row is incorrect and doesn’t follow the typical “raglan” look.
Decreasing on the 3rd row is easy, as it is the K6, sl 1, K2tog, psso, knit to last 9 sts, K3tog, K6, thus dec 4 sts; however I am unsure how to do it for the 4th row decrease.
Doing the reverse of this does not appear to be working.
Could anyone please help me on how the 4th row should be stitch wise?
Thank you so much in advance and thanks again for welcoming me to the community,
