So I am doing the armholes on my vest pattern (Harrison Vest by Rowan), and the pattern says to knit until holes are 26 cm (XL). This seems awfully small to me. When I measure my body I get about 34 cm. Although this seems awfully large to me. 34 is the same measurement I get measuring the tank top I am wearing. I think the vest pattern is written to fit snugly, but I plan on wearing it over t-shirts and dress shirts.
My question is this: Should I trust the pattern and only knit for 26 cm, or go with my measurement of 34 cm....or compromise and do 30 cm.?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
