Ok, so I have this really pretty sweater I’ve been knitting for my mom. I fought the button band, but got it to lay flat. Fought the sleeves, but got them to look nice and fit well. Now I am fighting the actual sweater itself. Here is a pic of what I am dealing with http://www.geocities.com/hosselblotta/MVC-029X.JPG The sweater kind of pokes out under the arm. The pattern to the sweater can be found here http://www.straw.com/cpy/patterns/cpy8703-4merino.html
What happened is my gauge was about 2:1 (I knit 2 sts for every 1 they say to knit) so it was pretty easy to figure out. What happened is I sewed up the side seam vertically, then horizontal to where the arm holes start. This resulted in a pointy edge that looks really stupid when you try it on. Fits kind of weird too. Is there an easy to fix this without ripping anything out. The key here is not to do any ripping. (That would make me cry) Maybe just by sewing it a different way or something.
