The band will stay the same width, but the part between the band and the edge will gradually decrease.
As you do these decreases, keep measuring the total length because when the you get to 26 inches, you'll also need to cast off 9 stitches for the armhole.
When you've got 44 stitches left, you keep working straight until the front measures the same as the back.
Do I count the Decrease Row as Row 1? I need to be on the right side to decrease? Please let me know. Thank YOu
