Clawthorpe

7.00

Clawthorpe is worked in the round from the bottom up. Both the body and sleeves begin with a provisional tubular cast-on, and the neck is finished with a tubular bind-off. After the body and sleeves are joined, raglan decreases are worked to shape the underarms, and short rows are worked to raise the back yoke. When working the yoke, you may find it helpful to change to the longer circular to accommodate the large number of stitches, and then change to the shorter circular when there are too few stitches to fit comfortably on the longer circumference.
