CO 49 st
1 x 1 rib for 2 inches to create neckline

Raglan Increases: (you will need 4 stitch markers to separate the body into 5 sections: left front, left sleeve, back, right sleeve, right front)

Row 1, RS: k2, p6, yo, pm, p1, yo, p7, yo, pm, p1, yo, p15,yo, pm, p1, yo, p7, yo, pm, p1, yo, p6, k2
Row 2 and all WS rows: knit all stitches
Row 3 and all RS rows: k2, *p to next marker, yo, sl marker, p1, yo* repeat from * 3 more times, p until last 2 st, k2

 Huh
This might be a dumb question, but i am new to raglan. My gauge, the yarn I am using, neck measurement and all that gave me 69 sts to cast on. What modifications do I need to make to Row's 1 through 3 to make it work out right? Because if I follow your instructions exactly, i will be short sts... please help julsey!

thanks a mill!!!

Ok.  I figured there should be approximately a 1 x 1 x 2 ratio (front x sleeve x back). Take the total CO # and divide by 6 to get the section amounts. With 48 stitches, I would have had 8 st on each side of the front, 8 on each sleeve and 16 on the back section. 

With 69 stitches, you would need 12 st on the front parts, 11 on the sleeve sections, and 23 on the back. 

Row 1, RS: k2, p10, yo, pm, p1, yo, p10, yo, pm, p1, yo, p21 ,yo, pm, p1, yo, p10, yo, pm, p1, yo, p10, k2

Hope this helps!!!

Sometimes it's knit and sometimes it's crochet.

Thank you so much for this pattern! I posted pictures of my finished shrug on the knitalong: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=62281.50 (and more pictures on my blog at http://knitpowerstopeace.blogspot.com/2005/11/fancy-kind-of-math.html). This shrug took no time to knit! Thanks thanks thanks!

>Continue raglan increases until sleeve measures the circumference of your upper arm. End with a WS row.

WOW. Duh. I can't believe I've never thought of this myself. Whenever I have a choice, I knit top down and I have to put it on scrap yarn to check and see if it's time to separate the sleeves from the body. A quick measure is so much easier. BLESS YOU.

And great job on the knock off by the way. I wonder if Anthroplogie knows that knitters do this over and over, it's hilarious.
