We had terrible freezing rain alerts at the end of last weekend. Maybe you were hit with this too. Oh, no, I am marooned at a knitting retreat. We all had to stay an extra night. The power went out. We didn’t have any water pumping in. And you know what? Spending time in the dark watching the fire in a wood stove with a bunch of knitters is all right!
We continued working on our “What If …” projects where I challenged them to come up with as many different ways to move from the neckband down to the bottom of the yoke.
You might look at the Yoke of a Top Down as a black box where some magic happens.
The typical raglan is worked increasing 8 stitches every other row (round).
If you keep to the ratio of 8 increases every other row (round), you can come up with many different ways to get from the stitch count of the neckband down to the stitch count at the bottom of the yoke.
Think about it. Where else could you put those 8 increases?
Here are some teasers. They are in progress and will be patterns for kids soon.
