Say that five times fast :-).
I know that a good armhole length for me is about 7 to 7 1/2 inches. It should have come as no surprise that the straps of my green ribbon tank were slipping off of my shoulders. The armhole measured a whopping NINE inches. What was I thinking?
So, a grabbed some DPNs, slipped them through the stitches about two inches beneath the seam. I clipped the seam and unraveled down to the picked-up loops. Then then I turned the knit inside out. I cast off the live stitches using the three-needle bindoff, and I was good to go. More about these fantastic, amazing, and wonderful Brittany needles in another post.
I think that a 7-inch armhole, while being a little on the small side, offers excellent bra coverage.
As some of you might know, I am all about bra coverage with summer knits. I do not like any part of my UNDERgarment peaking out from, well, underneath anything.
