Advice on resources for Ragland sleeve pattern drafting (knits)

Hi, I really want to draft a good Ragland Sleeve pattern in knits (like a T-shirt), but for some reason this is not described in any of my resources. Do any of you have a recommendation for a book (link, blog, youtube - everything would be interesting here) regarding this?

Maybe this can help: https://www.muellerundsohn.com/allgemein/raglanshirt-fuer-grosse-groessen-konstruieren/ It’s German but the drawing could be helpful.

I started off my pattern making with Metric Pattern Cutting for Women’s Wear by Winifred Aldrich, and I find that her instructions are very easy to follow on Seamly2D. She has a very nice section on raglan sleeves.

I hope this helps. :slight_smile: Please don’t hesitate to ask if you get stuck.

Grace, thank you so much! This book is also one of my go-to books, but I have completely missed this! I found it now, thanks to you!

Hi, @Nina

This is a very nice and easy way of doing raglans on Seamly2D that @slspencer posted in 2016, that may help: Raglan Sleeves with Rotate and Union tools
