Dear Angela

The pattern diagram gives the total depth of the armhole as D = 19 [21.25 23.5] cm. In the pattern the armhole shaping is worked over 30 [34 34] rows which works out at about 7 cm for the first size and about 8 cm for the second and third sizes.

The straight section is therefore 12 [13.25 15.5] cm or thereabouts. I hope this helps you draw the pattern on your Knit Radar. Having just checked through the other patterns in MKM the total armhole depth is always measurement D.

Kind regards
Sue

Hi Sue

Following on from your answer may I ask another question? I too am confused about this part of the shaping when transferring to the Knit Leader. I have never used mine.

If I want to copy a pattern from MKM which for example is sized for DK and I want to knit in 4-ply – how do I transfer the measurement so I get the correct size from 4-ply wool onto the charting device? Can you also explain how I draw the armhole curve shoulder shaping and neckline to ensure that my decreases are correct? Thank you so much.
