Knitting Fail thoughts

I've figured out what went wrong. You've got three sides to the piece: W (for waist), H (for halter length), and S (for shoulder width) as shown here. My H calculation should have been to bring the measuring tape from my waist up to my top vertebra and then multiply by 2. Instead I brought it all the way around my neck to my waist opposite the first and multiplied by 2. I would have been OK if I hadn't multiplied by 2, so my H measurement is exactly twice what it needs to be.

I'm *not* unraveling it. I'm not starting over.

I'm going to steek it. In other words, I am going to put a machine stitch crosswise halfway down through the the W side and cut the excess off. Snip Snip Snip!
