01-Identify issue

While counting stitches for picking up the collar, I realized there was a huge difference between the two front pieces. Those green stitch markers should be the same distance from the shoulder seam.

 

The sleeves were picked up and knit down, so I couldn't just detach the sleeve to rip out the extra rows. At first, I thought i was going to have to rip out the whole sleeve.

  

_____________

This garment was knit in the round and the sleeve stitches were picked up and knit down.

 

While picking up stitches for the collar, I realized that the right front and left front were too different lengths. I could not just unseam the pieces to rip back the shoulder, the extra 10 rows because those rows were attached to the sleeve.

 

If it were only a stitch or two, I could ease it into the collar, but the difference was too extreme to fake it.

 

This is my process for repairing the issue.
