so I guess i have been counting the stitiches and rows wrong then
so one complete v is a stitch and one complete v is a row
If that is so then my knitting appears to be perfect. unfortunately my neice is a 4 hour drive away and her mum isn't the best at measuring her. the trouble is the length just looks so short and obviously I cannot measure the chest as it is a wrap top.
guess I will just have to continue and hope for the best at least if it works out too small it will fit her little sister - just hope it comes out the right shape.
