Sweater Sense

Okay, I've been negligent about posting my progress because I've been making so much..well, progress! I got my neckline issues figured out and have even gotten so far as to join up under the arms...which is where I sit now. As I look in the mirror, I realize...it's loose. Really loose. Now, it fits through and around my arms comfortably, but the size around the back? Huge! That negative ease is just that...gone somewhere else. Now, since I signed up to crochet my favorite sweater, not my favorite sweatshirt, we might have something of an issue. If it tightens up in the next row or two, it should be okay...so for now, I'm going to switch to a smaller hook, which I planned to do anyway, and start decreasing by two stitches under the arms instead of just one. If this doesn't help, I may try and put in some decreases down the back as well...so for that, I have two questions.:
1-does the decreasing show the way the raglan increases do? and
2- is there such a thing as a princess-seamed sweater?

'cause if I can save it through some creative decreasing, I will...I really really don't want to frog it!

And I will post pictures soon, I promise. I know this site looks really dull without them. :)

Hi Rebecca, Glad I was of some assistance to you. I frogged mine so I could have the deeper v and have only just joined it up (School Holidays, Child wants my attention.)I have also gone to a smaller needle now and hopefully all will be fine. I think I am learning more about blogs than I am about crochet. I have changed my template so I could have links at the side, but have to confess to getting a computer guru to putting the original button on my page. So now cant figure out how to put the link on the side the way you have. Can you help me?:)
