So I finished and blocked my Deep V Argyle Vest (thank you Eunny, it's amazing).  It fits great except for the shoulders which are much too big.  I've seen that a few others have had this problem also...how did you fix it?  I really really don't want to rip out ALL of the neck and armhole ribbing and then take out the shoulder seems and rip back...can I even do that with the steeks?  probably not, eh?  Any and all suggestions would be welcome and appreciated.

Oh my god, I covet that sweater vest so bad.
It's rad.

It's definitely a lovely vest (and on my to-knit list). I'm not sure how you would fix it with more knitting/ripping back, but I hope I'm right in saying that you could probably sew in some elastic into the ribbing to make it tighter. That would probably make it more of a T-Shirt shape, though.

Other than that, I can't think of a quick solution.

I wonder if it would work to rip out the arm ribbing and then pick up fewer stitches farther into the pattern?

I don't think it looks noticeable.

I don't think it's that bad either, but I know that once you've put in that much work, you want it to be just perfect. I think that the elastic is a good idea - it'd give it a bit more shape, even if it doesn't turn out exactly how it was intended.
