    It would be really helpful if you could post a picture of what the finished stitch looks like. It’s easier to understand what’s going on in the video, if I know what the finished piece will look like. Thanks,

      There is a photo of the finished stitch, usually both a right side photo and a wrong side photo. You had to scroll past it in order to comment.

      Hi Joie!

      We will do a class at some point on knitting a raglan sweater, however it will not be part of our free tutorials.

      Thanks for the suggestion!

    Is there any stitch count adjustment to do this pattern in the round? Thank you and Merry Christmas!!

      Count adjustments? No. But you would reverse the stitches in the wrong side rows (2 & 4). Any purl stitches would be knit stitches and visa versa.
