I'm knitting a v-neck fitted sweater for myself at the moment. It's in Aran weight.
So I did the decreases per the pattern, every 13th row 4 times then 14 rows straight, then increases the same as the decreases and tried it on and it was way too long, It was down over the bum and it's supposed to sit just below the trouser line. Aaargh.
I didn't make any mistakes, and my gauge was right so it seems the pattern is wrong / stupid. So I frogged it up to the 3rd decrease and am eliminating one decrease and one increase. I could frog all the way up to the armhole and leave fewer rows between the dec/inc but I was already getting sick of knitting it!
So annoyed I didn't listen to my instinct about it being too long when I was going along, aarrrgh!
