Well, I don’t think its supposed to-it doen’t look that way in the picture at least. I’m knitting the baby sweater in Last Minute Knitted Gifts, and and the placket is centered at the front.
I’m pretty sure I know where I went wrong -I’m making the third size, 1-2 yrs, and when I started the placket I think I used the first size which said start 21 st before right front raglan decrease-then (when I was thinking it looked wonky, about 12 rows from the end, of course, lol!) I read the directions again and realized I was supposed to start at 45 stitches before rt front rgln decrease.
It really does help to read the instructions correctly! Incidentally its funny that you answered Ingrid (thank you!), because as I was trying to make this sweater I kept thinking that doesn’t sound like it’ll work! But I kept repeating “Trust the pattern!”, Ingrid said to, and her stuff is gorgeous! (and I’ll add read correctly, LOL) and what do you know the decreases worked perfectly
Too bad I messed up the placket, hehe…
Thanks again for your wise words!
