Raglan Shaping: How-to Identify What Round You Are On

Why I love top-down raglan sweater knitting projects
They're easy and work up quickly in the round or back and forth. I especially like the ones in the round because they're usually just knit- knit- knit  (i.e. a relaxing kickback, no-think project). But because they are so easy, sometimes I'm so into the process that I actually forget what row I'm on. Has this ever happened to you?

In this quick tutorial, I'll show you how to identify what round you are on just by looking at the stitches!
