Passap Raglan Decreases-Single bed


DSCF3943

I came across an article called Nice’ N’ Easy  by George LeWarre in the Duet International Book Number 8 Autumn/Fall 1991. I compared them to the decreases I had done previously in my blog and they are different. Their may be one that is the same. If you print out the page that is the picture above, you will have the directions and a picture of what they look like. On the third one down, there is a one, two and three stitch decrease. You would pick one of the three, not do them all in a row like my sample. I have about four more to add and will notify you later.

I would like to encourage you to try these and make a sample of your own and label them for future reference. You might want to start your own book of samples.

That is what  I am doing now when I don’t feel like knitting. I am using  large notebooks with pictures and directions and putting in all the samples I have knitted .They will be going with my passap when I sell her so that the next person does not have to spend all of their time on the internet looking for directions on a particular technique.  So far I have about 5 notebooks but I am going to organize them better.

The picture above is in my drop box with the other raglan decreases.

More Decorative Raglans

I came across more decorative raglans  while cleaning up. These are in an article from Machine Knitters Source 1999 Jan/Feb. The article is by Irene Woods.

The reason that 4 is not on the first picture is because I was doing both side decreases and used the ones that were the same every so many rows. There are three more in the article but they look similar to the last ones I did.

See, the reason I am doing all of these samples is so when I die, the next person won’t have to struggle to learn the machines! lol  Just kidding  🙂

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) 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.
