Traditionally crochet raglans were worked from the hem to neck in pieces — back, front(s), and sleeves — then sewn together afterwards. Working from the top down, however, means you can crochet the raglan yoke as a single piece to avoid the seaming, and you can try it on as you go.

Lily shows you how to plan and crochet a top-down raglan:
• Learn how to do this using different stitches.
• Chart out the shaping to keep track of where you are at all times.
• Ensure for a perfect fit every time.

You’ll learn lots and come away with a miniature sample or two to whet your appetite.

Special skills or knowledge needed to take this class:
Have made garments before. Have good, basic working knowledge of drafting standard patterns or converting measurements into stitches and rows using gauge. Be comfortable with stitch charts.
