      I am SO happy that this is helpful Haili!! I was so excited to finally make the pattern and have the neckline turned out perfect! I hope yours does too!!

    I think I must have the old version! 🙂 I love the Lane Raglan. I need to make some more. Yours look so cute and comfy!

      Where ever you bought the pattern from (if it was PFD) should let you download the new version for free! 🙂 Adrianna prefers the new, because it’s apparently more flattering than the original (I never made the original). And thank you, Skyler! They are the most comfortable shirts!

      I haven’t make the Linden Sweatshirt before, but I have seen it on a lot of people who have made it. I think the main difference is that the Lane Raglan has more shape and is a little more flattering, and the Linden is a little more boxy, from what I can tell. The neckline on the Lane is wider (out towards the shoulders) than the Linden, but since I fix it on my pattern, it’s very similar to the Linden. I hope that helps!

      I was wondering the same. I’ve made 2 Lindens, but I lengthen and do a split tail instead of band. Not boxy at al. But I also REALLY love these so may have to try this pattern!

        Thanks Melissa! That’s so good to know! I bought the Linden a few months ago and I’m just waiting for it to cool off and then I’ll make one. They are similar styles, but I feel like it’s useful to have them both, depending on the look you’re going for.

    You’re Lanes are gorgeous! I’ve made 3 now and love them. I’m thinking of adjusting the neckline just to see if I prefer a smaller one but I need a clarification. In the instructions (and I’m paraphrasing), in order to re-figure the size of your new neckband, it says to measure the new neckline and divide by 85% and add in seam allowances. My question is…do you add in both SA of neckline AND neckband so it would be 1/4 + 1/4 = ½ ? Or do you just add in 1/4 SA? Thank you 😊

      I’ve made three now, too! They are seriously the best. 🙂 You just add 1/4 inch from both sides (short ends of the neckband) because you’re going to end up sewing them together before you attach it (so the SA won’t be stretched). So yes, you would add 1/2 inch total *after* you’ve figured out 85% of your neckline. Let me know if you have any other questions!

    Thank you so much for sharing this! I’ve made four Lane Raglans and love everything about them except the neckline width at my shoulder. I’m going to alter my pattern tonight!
