The back of my cardigan is shorter than the front

I’m making the Harry styles cardigan and I noticed that the back of my cardigan is shorter than the front. What do I do!?


Does it matter? It looks great, you look great in it.

If it does matter… have you blocked it or washed it yet? If not, and depending what sort of yarn you used, you can shape it whilst damp (gently pulling it longer where needed) and let it dry flat.

I agree with Creations, the cardigan looks stunning and the difference in lengths fits the overall design.
If you want to extend the back you might be able to do so at the bottom or at the top. It would mean taking off the ribbing and adding partial squares across. Short rows could also be worked here although additional length all across the back should do it.

Thank you!
