I am working on making my own pattern for a babydoll style top and my yarn and my gauge are 5 sts per inch, since I needed 38" it should be 190 sts, I thought!
Well, unless my math skills are way off base it didn’t work! I thought after 4 rows it looked a bit much so slid it off the needles and wrapped it around myself, I had about 50 stitches too many LOL!
I ended up only using 140 at the very top then adding 5 stitches in the middle going back down after the chest to do ribbing.
I thought that was how you did the math to know how many to CO, I am so confused LOL!
