I'm so glad to hear it! I thought I must be missing something, or misreading somehow, since that's the case 99% of the time!
So anyone who works Berroco's free "June" pattern, beware!
Anyway the thing looks fine after all those decreases, and it may turn out a bit better than the original, since I thought the shoulders might slip off to the outside, they're set so widely in the pattern.
I'll try to post a pix when I'm done. Thanks so much for your reply!
