Oh dear. I fear I have badly confused a bunch of knitters this morning, when I tried to explain my mathematically-precise method for calculating a top-down raglan.

@mrvelocipede are you saying math and knitters do not mix? :smile:

When I first came across Elizabeth Zimmerman I was confused, but writing it all down explained all. I could point to where all the numbers came from, and see what they meant as I knit through the project.

But just hearing or reading it? not real.

@tricoteur In my mind, knitting and math are soulmates! But this is not the case for all knitters. I had hoped I would be better at translating, I guess.
