Insane. Ne.finally finished is he’d the back and it’s too short! Grrrr. I think k patterns need to say how hard they are! I love knit and purl

What pattern are you using? Often patterns do use some system to indicate the degree of difficulty but sadly, not all do this. Ravelry can be helpful for a quick look up.

Can you add to the back in any way: ripping out to the armholes and adding length or picking up sts at the cast on?
