Finally, I am done with knitting the back portion. I thought the one with chest size 44 will be right, but now when I look at the finished piece, it looks huge.
I don't know what kind of yarn I have (this is the only kind I get in my local shop), so I don't know whether it will shrink or stretch after the first wash.
I have two options: knit the front portion to match the back or knit the front for chest size 40, but before that should I wash the finished piece and see what will happen? If I do wash it, will I have a problem while seaming the two pieces?
