I was just about done with the left front, when I realized I had 2 extra stitches! Now, if this wrap was knit out of sportweight yarn, I wouldn't even care, but for this chunky yarn, 2 extra stitches is 3/4"!
My first thought was, of course, I forgot some decreases somewhere. The yarn is very tweedy and textured, so the decreases (or anything else, for that matter) are hard to see. I marked each decrease with a split-ring marker to count:
Can you spot my flip-flop tan?
I counted, and I hadn't missed any decreases! Then I realized, oh, I probably didn't bind off the right number of stitches at the armhole! Eureka! Good thing that for this chunky knit this is minimal amount of reknitting.
