The “Missing Link” PDF Pattern: - A Raglan Sleeve Modification for the Baby ‘February Sweater ‘

- The mysterious piece of the pattern which fits!
- Baby February with Raglan sleeve style modification

Have you ever wondered about how your baby February sleeves sit at an awkward angle? Well, wonder no more – here is the “missing link” and the path to neatly sitting sleeves!
I have long had a fascination for this pattern and keep returning to it. The ‘February Sweater’ was originally designed by the legendary Elizabeth Zimmermann and can be found in her book, ‘Knitter’s Almanac”. This little sleeve modification fits like it was always meant to be there. It allows the sleeves to sit well and eliminates the “stress spot” at the ‘sleeve divides’ by creating a small ‘raglan’ for easy stitch additions to sleeve and body.

Helpful adaptation for the pattern - note that this just includes the adaptation, not the whole pattern.

Additional policies

CARE:- Occasionally with hand-knits made using fine natural yarns such as Malabrigo 'Silky Merino' a little woven in end can pop through to the front of the garment after washing - DO NOT snip it off. The best way to deal with this it to use a fine crochet hook or a yarn needle to thread it back to the wrong side of the garment where it is less likely to pop out again, rather than snipping it off.

I recommend gently hand-washing your fine quality 100% wool or silk/wool mix garment in tepid/cool water with a gentle wool detergent or natural shampoo free of parabens. Rinse thoroughly and lay the garment flat on a folded over towel, then roll up and squeeze excess water out. Take a dry towel and lay the garment flat on the dry towel, gently shape the item if necessary and place in the shade to dry. This will ensure that your unique hand-knit will reward you with long lasting wear and softness. :-)
