Unequal front/back sizing?
I'm working a sweater vest using cotton and a slip-stitch Chevron motif. Despite a gauge swatch and my best efforts at measurement, I've finished the back to find it a little narrow. Perhaps my knitting tightened up a bit. Do you think it would be OK to simply adjust the front to be larger to compensate? I only need a couple of inches and would rather err on the side of larger because I don't want the Chevron pattern to stretch out over my middle-aged spread. 8) I don't think this would move the side seam too much... might even be better since I carry the weight more in front anyway. This is my first attempt at a garment so I decided to make for myself since I could more easily scrap it that way if it didn't work out! I really like the way it's coming out, however, so I hope I can salvage it. Thoughts? Thanks for your help.
