So, for an incredulously nerdy project I'm working on (a cardigan for a double bass), I'm having some problems eyeballing out the shapes. The bass has some pretty slopey shoulders (for a visual reference, http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/b9/Double_bass.jpg), and I'm looking to make the cardigan end just above the bouts. I can do pretty much all of it solo EXCEPT shaping around the shoulders!

I figure to just do it in pieces, but even then, getting the edges to semi-fit around the front and the back face is presenting a mental mind-eff.

Tl;dr- what're some suggestions on how to write patterns given shapes of flat surfaces?

Also, this is my first post. Nice to meet y'all!
