The Incredible, Custom-fit Raglan Sweater A simple, fill-in-the-blanks method for making the incredible, custom-fit raglan--the sweater that is knit from the neck down in one piece, to fit anybody! By Pamela Costello, St. Paul, Minnesota Introduction The incredible, custom-fit raglan is a sweater knit from the neck down in a single piece on circular needles, and it can be made to fit any size from infant to adult. This form of raglan sweater is not my original idea. This worksheet will take you through the steps required to design and knit the custom-fit raglan. Materials The materials needed to design and knit this sweater are: What kind of yarn? This is your sweater, so choose any yarn you darn well please! How much yarn? It is impossible to calculate in advance the exact amount of yarn needed. This chart also gives approximations of the raglan measurements for each standard size. Measurements The following measurements are needed: Neck-size:_______ (measure snugly around the neck, or use an appropriate man's collar size) Casting on - Shirtless Male Celebrities One row handspun scarf One row handspun scarf ( If you're not a spinner and you don't want to be and you don't want to wade through this, the recipe for the scarf is at the end.) I'm sure that this is a subtle element of my personality and that nobody has really noticed, so I'll point out to you that I may be just a smidge on the obsessive side. This wee quirk occasionally pays off, and my fixation over the last 24 hours with the Grafton Fiber batt has totally encouraged this trait. I loved the progression of colours, and I was determined to have a project at the end of it that reflected that. This can be sort of tricky with spinning. Yarn: Scarf: (I feel so clever I can hardly stand it.) Yarn: About 12 wraps per inch, or roughly a worsted weight. Start: Cast on 26 stitches (to make it wider or narrower add or remove stitches in groups of 4 ) Row 1: *knit 2, knit into the back of the next stitch, purl 1. Cast off. Final step?
