thank you so much for this pattern! it's exactly what i was looking for, had "invented" it before but was not up to re-invention at this point in life. it has the great fitting neck without short-rowing in the back...thank you for writing it out! i have some indigo-dyed wool, and will let you know how i make out. you have made my day! kj

I understand that you increase at the Ragland lines until you divide for the sleeves every other row. Do you keep increasing at the end of the row which has become the center?
Also there is a dip thing in the center front before joining. Do you sew it closed before adding the neck ribbing?

You stop the increases before dividing for sleeves.

I understand from previous comments that I join at the start of round 21 and continue to increase at the raglan lines. My question is-- do I also need to do any thing with the edge stitches or the increases at the beginning and end of the row? By any chance do you have anything showing the number of stitches at various points--number of stitches per sleeve. Thank you

After you join and start working in the round you include selvedge sts in the bodice of the sweater. The increases shape the neckline in will be also included in the sweater stitch count.

I'm almost done with the collar, but I'm confused that on the picture it looks like it's ribbed and I don't find that in the instructions.
I also find it difficult to understand that it will be wide enough across the shoulders to fit with a total of 139 stitches (that's what I figure I should end up with after my increases for the medium size. ( plus those three you add to join). Am I missing something?

I have begun this pattern. I understand I need to increase the raglan sleeves until I separate the sleeves. Do I keep increasing in the stitches that were the beginning and end of the rows?
The back of the sweater is not increasing but staying at 25 stitches. What am I doing wrong?

You have to make a double increase at every raglan stitch. If you do this, the amount of stitches in the back, front and both sleeve will increase for 2 st after each increase.

Seemed just right to knit my homespun wool but lost the plot with it when I started to knit the rounds before sleeve division.
Did I keep on increasing at raglan line? every round or alt? will try another pattern and hope to use this one with clearer instructions given.

You have to make increases at the raglan lines in every odd row until you have to divide for sleeves.
