Crnaofca: I love your take on this capelet! I don't suppose you kept notes on your pattern such that you'd be willing to share? It's gorgeous! What yarn did you use?

yarn is made in croatia, so brand doesn't mean anything to you, but it is 45%wool, 10%casmere, and 45%polyacryl. i worked with 2 strands, yarn is quite soft and nice on the skin, not like regular wool. it is quite comfortable, but not too warm:) my sis loves it:)

and about pattern... i didn't make notes, i keep everything in my head:)

i casted on like i was doing a regular julsey's capelet, i don't remember how many sts was that, but collar is about 40 cm/16". simply your gauge over 4" multiplied by 4. make sure you have odd number of sts on your needles.

i did collar in seed stitch for about 5 cm/ 2".

then i divided my sts number by 6. about 1/6 of stitches is for every front and sleeve, and 2/6 for back.
you have to have odd number of stitches for every sleeve and back, and for each front "panel". if you have problems with math, i'll do it for you, but it is quite simple.
for example, if you have 49 stitches, 49/6 is about 8. so, take 2*8 + 1 stitch for back, 8-1 for arms and 8+1 for fronts.
place your marker when it suits you, you can do it at the beginning, i did it on the last collar row.

okay, now we have numbers.

whole eyelet-y pattern has 4 rows.

in every rs row you are adding 2 sts for sleeves and back, but only one for each front panel, so we will have to compensate for that (i mean, in every row you get 2 new sts for (yo, k2tog) on sleeves and back, but not on the front, you get just one st per rs row). that's why our pattern has to have 4 rows instead of 2 julsey had:)

red is for fronts, green for sleeves and purple for back, this way it is more obvious:)

1st row: k1, p1, k1 (for edge), k1, (yo, k2tog)* until 3 sts before marker left, k2, yo, k1, SLIP MARKER, k1, yo, k2, k1, (yo, k2tog)* until 3 sts before marker left, k2, yo, k1, SLIP MARKER k1, yo, k2, k1, (yo, k2tog)* until 3 sts before marker left, k2, yo, k1, SLIP MARKER k1, yo, k2, k1, (yo, k2tog)* until 3 sts before marker left, k2, yo, k1, SLIP MARKER, k1, yo, k2, k1, (yo, k2tog)* until 3 sts before end left, k1, p1, k1
2nd row: k1, p1, k1, p until 3 sts left, k1, p1, k1
3rd row: k1, p1, k1 (for edge), k1, (yo, k2tog)* until 4 sts before marker left, k3, yo, k1, SLIP MARKER, k1, yo, k2, k1, (yo, k2tog)* until 3 sts before marker left, k2, yo, k1, SLIP MARKER, k1, yo, k2, k1, (yo, k2tog)* until 3 sts before marker left, k2, yo, k1, SLIP MARKER, k1, yo, k2, k1, (yo, k2tog)* until 3 sts before marker left, k2, yo, k1, SLIP MARKER, k1, yo, k3, k1, (yo, k2tog)* until 3 sts before end left, k1, p1, k1
4th row: k1, p1, k1, p until 3 sts left, k1, p1, k1


i repeated these 4 rows until my sleeve was big enough. then i separated sleeves from body, and continued to work in seed st until it was long enough.
i then did sleeves in the round until they were long enough. important: if you have odd number of sts for sleeves (which you have if you followed the pattern:)), you will be able to do seed st in round. with even# of sts, you just can't do it:)

I'm currently trying to knit this but on the first row of the raglan increases I count 57 stitches, and if I follow it exactly (with only 49 sts cast on) I can't finish the row. So...could someone help me? What am I missing?

Holy crap, do you keep the YO on the left needle and use it for the following stitch?
Because if I do that, the amount of sts works for row 1.

Help would be much appreciated. <3

yes the YO are increased stitches
so every-other row you are adding 8 stitches with the yarn-overs
hope that helps?!
