so i got to the arm holes and i had to stop on the back piece..
this is the first time i've ever knit a sweater that involves seaming. (i always did top downs)
anyway, I am knitting the back piece of this sweater, and i've just finished putting in the decreases for the arm holes. it now says to knit until the arm holes measure 8.5 inches.....
so do i
A-measure them on the diagonal from where i started the decreases to the top of where i'm knitting now?
B-measure them on the diagonal from where i finished the decreases to the top of where i'm knitting now?
C- measure with a tape measure along the curve of the arm hole from where i started the decreases to the top of where i'm knitting more?
i know that this measurement is somewhat important because it'll mean either a nice fitting sweater or something too tight or too baggy.
thanks a bundle for your help!!!!
(i posted this over in the how to section too...i just thought i'd ask people who are working on this project to)
