I am NOT a Child

Alright, so, I'm making my first sweater using a basic guideline from here. She has a list of standard sizes, and judging by my measurements I fit into about a size 10 or 12 child's size. Excluding sleeve length and body length of course. Is that crazy? I think so.

I know some of you have made top-down raglans before, I've seen Lana's, and I just wanted to know if these directions sound accurate. Or have I been knitting something that just...isn't going to fit? lol

Here's what it looks like so far (modelled by my PoTC notebook):
Total PS

I have never used that pattern/formula before. It looks fine to me. I can clearly see your raglan increases. No problem there. Are you making a sweater or a cardigan? I saw that the neckline for the sweater is not connected make the drop neck. I have never tried this approach, myself. I usually use a different formula...But so far your top down raglan looks fine to me. YAY for sweaters.


Thanks Lana! It's a sweater, and I'll be doing a LOT of back and forth knitting since it's going to be a v-neck. *sigh* This formula made more sense to me than did another one I looked at, probably because that one did the math for me. Believe it or not, I'm less confused when I do the math myself.
