1. do not always take into account that each product must be larger than the measurements taken (for free movement), depending on the type of figure – from 6 to 15 cm.
This applies mainly to the circumference of the chest.
For example, when taking a measure of the chest circumference of 100cm, it is necessary to calculate as follows: 100: 2 = 50cm, this is the width of the back (up to the armhole reduction).
Before will be wider: 50 + 6 = 56 cm.
In sports sweaters, the width of the back and front may be the same, and we add 10 cm for free movement.
2. Gap on the back knit height equal to the armhole on the front, and sometimes shorter.
In fact, the armhole on the back should always be higher (longer) than on the front, at least by 1-2 cm.
The more convex (stooped) the back is, the more attention must be paid when building the pattern to the corresponding increase in the height of the armhole on the back (the only exception is things for babies). 3. The bevel of the shoulder is sometimes made the same on the front and on the back.
In fact, the shoulder bevel on the front should be 1-2 cm more than the back.
4. The neckline on the back is sometimes too narrow and shallow;
therefore, one should keep in mind the sufficient depth and width of the hem.
If the errors mentioned in paragraphs 2, 3 or 4 were made,
a) shoulder seams will "run away" back;
The reason – too short armhole on the back and not sure bevel shoulder;
b) a jacket or blouse will lag behind the neck and the whole product will tend to “run back”;
the reason is a narrow and shallow neck.
