I wonder?

I have just finished the all the parts to the Tahoe cart. on Knitty(Spring '07). the problem is the armhole on the back of sweater is too short. I am wondering if I can add length to the shoulder without making a mess of the entire thing?? Please help.

You probably could take out the shoulder bind off and knit it longer. You might want to take it out to below any neck shaping and knit straight until you’ve increased the armhole to the length you want it to be, then finish off the way you did the first time.
