Hello there!

Well, I started my vest! And...I already have a question for you all!

California Sun vest.doc

I'm making a size large, if that will help you out. The pattern says early on that a marker should be placed after stitch 86 and stitch 99. There should be "3 sts after last marker at the top by neck."

I'm working on the short rows immediately below that, and I'm at the part where it says to work "until piece measures 2 7/8" measured at the top (= by neck) and approx. 8 1/8" at the bottom (stop after 1 row worked from RS)."

Until the first marker (after 86 sts), the piece measures the longest. After that, until the second marker (after 99 stitches), it is a little shorter. And after the second marker, there are three stitches left, and that part is the shortest. Does this mean that "by the neck" is the three stitches after the second marker? Is that the part that is supposed to measure 2 7/8"?

Hopefully that is all easy enough to understand.
