Probably not instantly, maybe a few rounds in between. You can try it on by putting another circ through half the sts, or threading some scrap yarn through them. That way you can see where your body starts to flare out, figure how long from where you are now and start the increases there.

Hey!
Is anyone still knitting the raglans? I just started this week, and i'm really excited. I've gotten past the shoulder part and am knitting the body, so now i just have to speed knit for a while. I'll post a pic when i'm done!

oh, and all the sweaters look amazing! Good job everyone!

I was taught to knit and purl 2 days ago and now that I'm home I NEED to try to make a raglan... I'm a crochet person, but crocheting and nice stretchy clothes don't mix well, so it's time to knit!

will be going to get circular needles this afternoon, I hope I can use them!

I have a little question though... I have some acrylic yarn that calls for 4mm knitting needles. since the pattern is written for at least 5mm... would it look too bad if I use this yarn with 5mm needles? I don't want to do it on 4mm because that will be too much stitch guessing for a newbie like me...

babbling Tongue I think I'll go get some 5mm circular needles and look for some yarn that calls for 5mm knitting needles... I'm too excited about making my own sweater!

edit: I have already started! I thought using circular needles would be easiert, but making the collar was horrible >_< don't really know if I'll understand how to make the yoke part... let's see!

I've never knitted anything in my life, but if I did, I would probably try it on every 5 minutes Smiley
I love the color, btw. Smiley

my raglan is slowly growing... I have sleeve holes!! I'm so excited  Tongue I am trying to make it a bit loose, as I like jumpers. I fear sleeves and dpns, though...

I want to give this a try... but I'm a little nervous as the only sweaters that I've knitted so far have been for my dogs. But this shouldn't be too difficult even for a newbie like me right? All the other sweaters look great btw!

you should try it! I had never ever knitted before and I am producing something, so you will do it much better!  Grin
