NOTE: Some people have been having trouble with the length of the waist decrease section. I found that the row gauge was slightly compressed in this section, resulting in the need for more rows for the same amount of length.

The sweater should measure 7.75” to the last set of decreases, then 9” to the end of the last set of plain rows before the bust increases. The decreases and increases should occur about an inch apart.

I hope this helps clarify!
