standard Knit Along with eliZZZa * Raglan Sweater Top Down

This video series shows you how to knit a raglan sweater top down. I will explain step-by-step how to cast on, how to increase for the raglan slants, how to calculate you pattern and much more to know. For our Knit Along I plan to knit a men’s sweater in size 52/54 (European, chest circumference 104 cm) with a tiny (and very simple) cable pattern…

For this example I user the cosy microfibre yarn Omega+ by LANG Yarns, yardage 75 m / 50 g and needle size 5 mm. You need a few stitch markers, small yarn loops will do the job.
