A small number of threads for mating in a circle makes it easy to dissolve the product and, if necessary, to change its length in any direction. Upon the dissolution of the yarn can be reused. The downside is a large number of loops involved in the work. In addition, not all patterns can run in a circle.

Before you start to knit Raglan knitting from the neck, you need to calculate the number of loops. First you need to measure the neck circumference: 48 women’s clothing size this value is 36 cm Other required size, which requires the calculation of Raglan from the top spokes is the density of knitting. To measure it, you need to make a sample of about 35-40 loops with a height of 15 see Pattern in this case is taken the one that made the product. The sample needs to wet, dry and steam iron, then give the rest up. Next with a ruler count the number of loops per 1 cm of fabric.
As an example of how to calculate Raglan knitting from the top, taken the density of the knitting, is equal to 2.5. Given this value, we can calculate the initial number of loops multiply 2.5 by 36, i.e., the circumference of the neck. The result is 90. Next this value is divided in the following percentages:
- 45% prior;
- 35% back;
- 10% on each sleeve.
Of the total number of loops necessary to subtract those that will occur in the 4 regenye line. It turns out the 90-4×1 = 86. If the strip will consist of 2 loops, 4 multiply 2. In the end, the calculation is as follows:
- 86 x 0.45 = 38 p. at front;
- 86 x 0.35 = 30 p – back;
- 86 x 0.1 = 9. – on each sleeve.
