Done! And I'm pleased with the fit. It's not too big (a mistake I have made with previous sweaters, which just make me look huge) and not too small. This has been a learning curve, following Elizabeth Zimmermann's non-standard methods. The first time I reached the neck, I tried the sweater on and found it too short. I ripped back all the way to the armholes and reknitted the yoke. I then knitted 6 inches of K2 P2 rib for a turtleneck, but when I bound off I found the edge too tight. I decided to rip back and leave 2 inches of ribbing, then bound off again VERY loosely. The most time-consuming part of ripping back is picking up the @#$% stitches - they tend to be very evasive, especially in rib, as the stitches are all over the place!
If I make another seamless raglan, I would probably not bother with the extra short rows across the back - they seem to make the knitting less smooth at the side where the wraps are. And I would probably make the sleeves a smidgeon longer and the neck a little looser, maybe keeping to 40% of the body stitches as a minimum for the neck opening, as per EZ's percentage system for her yoke sweaters.
I finished this yesterday and immediately cast on for another project (I can't possibly be without something on the needles). I have some Lion Suede from a ripped out sleeveless top that I made from The Knitting Experience - The Purl Stitch (didn't like the fit) so have started a backpack from Melanie Falick's Kids Knitting. This is a book I'd recommend to anyone starting out, not just kids!
