I'm making a vest for my dad and have arrived at the V-neck shaping but I'm a little confused.
[I]Armhole shaping starts with this:
Cont in patt, BO 6 sts at beg of next 2 rows - 118 sts remain. Work dbl dec (BO 1, SSP on RS/BO 1, K2TOG on WS) at each armhole edge 7 times - 14 sts dec at armhole edges. At the same time. when work measure 17 3/4 inches from CO, on next RS row, shape V neck as follows: Work even patt to center 2 sts, place next 2 sts on holder, join second ball of yarn, work even in patt to end.
[/I]I've done the above and now I'm at...[I]
Working each side separately and cont armhole shaping, work dbl dec at each neck edge 2 times, then dec 1 st at each neck edge every other row 16 times - 24 sts remain each side after neck and armhole shaping is complete.[/I]
I understand what it says, But if I keep doing armhole shaping for that amount of rows won't it be too close in to the chest at the front? :??
