I started knitting a ribbon tank (free pattern at elann.com)
I am usually a size 6p, but sort of busty and so I chose to make the size where the finished bust is 37 inches (rather than the smallest size of 33 inch). I didn’t know how much the ribbon would stretch, and didn’t want it to be too tight across the bust. I am knitting from the bottom in the round, and now I see that it looks like it is going to be too big at the bottom (and maybe the top, too). So, the question is: can you sort of take in the sides by seaming it when it’s done? I’m not ripping out. Nuh uh. not me.
Also, some help on patten interpretation: when it says:
"When back measures length x, decrease 1 st at each edge every 12 rows: 3 times "
Does this mean you start counting rows once you are at length x, and decrease every 12 rows from there? Or do you do the FIRST decrease at length x, and then every 12 rows? ie do you decrease immediately at the given length , or wait until 12 rows from that point? (Already chose one way, but just wanted to know…)
