PATTERN HELP

Hi!

I’m knitting my first from the top down jumper and the pattern I am following has me so confused!
So the pattern stated after completing the yoke:

“Divide for raglan increases as follows (note you are going to work 1st - a raglan st between all raglan increases) 1 raglan st 11 sts (left sleeve) 1 raglan st 45 sts (back) 1 raglan st 11sts (right sleeve) 1 raglan st 45 sts (front)”
This is where I first got confused as I didn’t know whether when knitting in the round should I of already started knitting the raglan stitches to get an increase in stitches or was I just placing the markers for the increases in the next section? If anyone could help me with what was right then this would be great!

The next section the states on short rows, recomending the German short row techinque:

“short rows and raglan increases are now worked back and forth as follows:
M1R, k raglan st, M1L, repeat this 3 times” (so i assume still working in the round not changing to working back and forth for short rows? Or am I meant to be working as if working with strait needles now increasing the short rows on the back and carrying out a raglan stitch at the same time as this?

This is just the first bit I’m confused about but it would be too long to go into all of that now so I will leave that for another time!

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks

Hi and welcome!
The raglan stitch is the marked stitch. Increases will be made on either side of this stitch. This row:
“Divide for raglan increases as follows (note you are going to work 1st - a raglan st between all raglan increases) 1 raglan st 11 sts (left sleeve) 1 raglan st 45 sts (back) 1 raglan st 11sts (right sleeve) 1 raglan st 45 sts (front)”
is telling you where to mark the raglan stitch. There are no increases yet.

“short rows and raglan increases are now worked back and forth as follows:
M1R, k raglan st, M1L, repeat this 3 times” This row is telling you to work the increases, M1R and M1L. The raglan stitch is there between the two increases.
So far there are no short rows directions, only increases directions. Read further in the pattern and see if you come to short rows in this same section.

What is the name of your pattern?

Can you let us know what the name of the pattern is? That would help us to explain it for you.

Hi thank you for the help! I think I may of gone wrong then oops!
The pattern name is:
PetiteKnit - Hanstholm Sweater

The pattern name is: PetiteKnit - Hanstholm Sweater

Thank you. Very good looking sweater.

I don’t know when the increases start but if you’ve only started them a round early, it should be ok.
