How to measure yoke in sweater?

Hello, I am working on knitting a newborn sweater. The pattern sets up the sweater from the top and then asks that I knit in st st until the yoke measures 3.5inches. How should I measure that? Should it be 3.5 inches from cast on straight down?
Thank you very much

Yes, measure from the cast on. Unless otherwise stated this it typically what’s intended.
