The back and fronts of Rainy Lake are worked flat in pieces from the bottom up, and the sleeves are worked in the round to the armholes. The yoke is shaped with raglan decreases. When working the raglan and neck shaping on the fronts, make sure to read ahead, as shaping occurs simultaneously.

The body pattern and raglan and neck shaping is worked utilizing both stitch and row gauge to determine size. As a result, it is important to match both stitch and row gauge in order to obtain proper fit. Make sure to block your gauge swatch to determine the correct gauge once you have completed the finishing process.
