I now know that next time I must start the shaping in the bust area a bit wider apart so it does not pucker, for now there is no time to change. It is a lesson learnt as I have never done it before. My pattern at the back is going well and at the front decided to use a takitahi pattern. It looks good.
I was not sure if it looked ok but got some good remarks at our last noho at Opunake so feel much better.
It has b een a lot of work with each row taking a lot of time, but it is getting there at least another 6 aho to go. Below the photo of the takitahi patten at the front.
