The armhole is marked, as per pattern instructions, 8.5 inches down from the shoulder graft, and this is a child's size 5/6. That's a fairly generous armhole, I think....isn't it? It certainly looks like a great big dropped shoulder armhole.
I'm going to go back to the original pattern on line and double check my numbers. After I downloaded it, I went through and edited so that only the numbers that applied to the size I wanted were printed. It's possible that I made a mistake during that process, but I doubt it. In any event, the results don't please me, so I'll admit that I know I'm going to frog it. I can't stand to leave things like this as they are.
