Hey, this is probably a question with an obvious answer, but I'm knitting my first non-flat item: a vest from "Classic Knitted Vests." After giving directions on armhole shaping, you're supposed to knit "until armhole measures 8.5 inches." Okay, is that
A. 8.5 inches from BEFORE you started shaping (vertical measurment)?
B. 8.5 inches from ATER shaping stops (vertical measurment after curve)?
C. 8.5 inches of curve? (Like a partial circumference?)
Okay, looking at my question, it probably makes less sense than the directions, but I thought I'd have a crack to see if anyone can help. Thanks!!!
