Decorative Decreases on Raglans

My friend Sheila and I were in a knit club years ago. I did a session on decorative edgings for raglan sweaters or for anywhere you do decreases(V necks). I used a bright orange yarn so you could see the designs. I can send you a copy of the main page in a pdf file(I think)Β for your files if you would like them. Just email me. If you double click on the thumbnail pictures I believe you will get a slide show and can see how these were done. One picture does not have the instructions in it. It is a seperate picture.

    Please tell me this is NOT alot of work! It’s so pretty and feminine!

    • Okay, It is not a lot of work. It is actually fun to do and on some of them you don’t do the decreases as often. Try them. I just made a cuff and started increasing on each side like I was doing a sleeve.
      I dare you to do it. πŸ™‚
