# Raglan Shaping Order

I am very confused about the order of the rows in this part of my pattern. Could someone help me set up the pattern sequence? THANKS!

Begin raglan shaping
Notes: Increases for raglan shaping and center front shaping are worked at the same time, at a different rate. Read the instructions completely and carefully before beginning raglan shaping. Change to longer, larger circ when necessary.
Row 1 raglan inc row: (RS) *Knit to one st before m, k1/R, sl m, k1, k1/R; rep from * three more times (8 sts inc’d)—52 (52, 52, 54, 54, 54, 56, 56, 58) sts.
Row 2: Purl.
Row 3 center front inc row: (RS) K1, m1-R, work raglan shaping as est, knit to last st, m1-L, k1 (2 sts inc’d for center front and 8 sts inc’d for raglan shaping)— 62 (62, 62, 64, 64, 64, 66, 66, 68) sts.
Rep center front inc row every 4th row 21 (21, 22, 23, 23, 23, 24, 25, 26) more times, AND AT THE SAME TIME,
Rep raglan inc row every other row 14 (17, 18, 20, 21, 26, 28, 30, 32) more times, every 4th row 2 (1, 2, 2, 2, 0, 0, 0, 0)—60 (68, 76, 82, 84, 90, 96, 100, 106) sts for back, 44 (46, 48, 52, 54, 60, 64, 68, 72) sts for each sleeve.

What exactly do you need help with? A link to your pattern would be helpful. How is “k1/R” defined? It’s placement tells me it is an increase but I’m not familiar with the abbreviation. You’ll need to count the rows for the raglan increases and the center front increases separately.

Welcome to KnittingHelp!
It may help to write out a list of the row numbers, noting which rows have raglan increases (every 2nd row) and which have center front increases (every 4th).
So the raglan increases are on rows 1,3,5,7,9 etc and the center front increases are on rows 3, 7, 10 depending on the size you’re making. If there’s a 0 for your size in the center increases, just do the center increase once.
