What is a raglan stitch?
‘Raglan seams’ is when the sleeves start at the very top of the neck, and follow the shoulder lines, from the neck to the sleeves. This results in a nice effect marking the transition between the sleeves and the body. Raglan is a widely used technique for working increases when knitting from the top down.
