Hi, I'm new here and quite new to knitting, I have been making this pattern:-


And the front just doesn't seem to fit at all, can someone tell me if they think there is a mistake in the pattern, as the front is no way deep enough to fit with the back when I knit it up. I'm making a size above the L one as I changed the size to fit me.

It just doesn't seem to fit together and I'm having no luck with asking the people who run the website.

I need a really easy plus sized tie front shrug and this was the only pattern I could find that was free and easy enough for me to knit with the amount and type of wool that I have.

Thankyou for your help.

I haven't knit the pattern, but looking at it it seems that below the fronts are 1/3rd the width of the back (roughly, 20/63 and 15/53 below and above the armhole respectively). Did you keep that proportion when you upsized it?

Work in garter stitch over 17(19,20) sts until work measures same as the back ending with a WS row completed.
Did you continue knitting until the front piece was the same as the back piece? It really means until the armhole shaping on the back which should be 8" for the large, not sure how long you made yours.

I do have a link to another pattern but the yarn is quite a bit thinner. Here it is anyway, maybe you can use it sometime.
