I am STILL working on the Kenobi jacket (over 2 years later.) I am on the front where you start shaping for armhole, but I have a bit of a problem. The pieces are done in patterns, like the left front is moss st, then reverse st st, then 1x1 rib, then 3 border stitches. It will be eventually seamed to the moss stitch side of the back. The problem I have is it says to knit until the piece measures 19" (the same for the back, of course) and then start shaping, but I’m getting a different measurement in the rev. st. st section, the moss section, and the rib section and now I see the same problem with the back (it was blocked 2 years ago, didn’t quite hold the blocking in my UFO drawer)… what do I do? I would presume I could just try to line up back and front to make sure the shaping matches up, but is that “safe” to get a nice smooth seam or might I run into trouble after blocking the pieces? This is my first even close to finished garment, so I’m at a loss.
Thanks so much!
