How To Video - Seaming a Raglan

A raglan sweater is defined by the shaping of its sleeves. The sweater and sleeves are attached at an angle, forming a beautiful seam from the underarm to the collar bone. Fun fact – this style of sweater is believed to have gotten its name from FitzRoy James Henry Somerset, the 1st Baron Raglan, who wore a coat with similar sleeve shaping after the loss of his arm in the Battle of Waterloo. Raglans can be knit in many ways - seamed, seamless, top down or bottom up - but no matter how they are made, they all share the same distinguishing line at the shoulders. This week's free pattern, Marsala, is knit flat in Berroco Weekend® Chunky and seamed. Watch our how-to video as we explain this sweater’s schematic and how easy it is to seam your sleeves!
