How to crochet raglan increases on a jacket (working top down)

When working a raglan yoke top down you increase on specific places on the yoke creating a raglan line in each transition between body and sleeves. In this DROPS video we show how you can do this. We crochet back and forth on this video, but the techique is the same if you work in the round.

We have placed 4 markers on the row and we increase by each marker crocheting 2 tr, 2 ch, 2 tr around the ch-space. In the second row we show how to work the sleeves after the yoke is finished and in the third row we show how to crochet the tr in the ch under each sleeve.

You must read the pattern and look at the charts to be able to follow this video properly. You’ll find patterns using this technique by clicking on the pictures below.

Jeg er igang med at ville lave en dåbskjole ud af DROPS baby 19-8, men jeg forstår simpelthen ikke de udtagninger og raglan. Jeg får ingen raglan på det jeg laver... Hjæææælp! Jeres video her, viser jo ikke hvordan man gør som der står i opskriften. Mvh. Stephanie
