It’s the knitting process.
Repeat 12 trillion times as you rip out the neck shaping on your dad’s cardigan because you realised it looked shi … rubbish.

There was a slight miscalculation on my part in determining the rate of decreases for the neck.
I was working from the total number of stitches in each front (61), the number of stitches at the shoulder (34 + 4 cast off) over the number of rows to remaining in the fronts (30 out of 40 to leave a nice straight edge right at the shoulders).
I FORGOT THAT I CAST OFF 6 STITCHES AT THE ARMHOLE.
I am an idiot.
The decreases were occurring too quickly, as you can see from this tracing I did from the garment:

Lower asshat line is what I’d knit and the nice line above it is what I should have knit.
So, a quick recalculation, followed by a slap around the head and I ripped.
