Where do you measure armholes from?

I’m up to the arm decreases on my first top and want to know where i measure from.
Do i measure from the start of the decreases or the straight part for the overall length?? :shrug: :doh:

Hazel :??

From the row you bind off the stitches for the underarm if it’s for overall length. But if the pattern says to knit straight after you do the decreases, then you measure from the last row you decreased.


Thanks for the reply :hug: :muah:
That helps clear things up, now i can carry on with my top :happydance:
