Its too big by two stitches... do I go down 1 size? Its calling for 10.5 needles.. would a 10 probably ok??Thanks ladies!
Nope, you need to use larger needles if you have too many stitches.
Also, make sure your swatch is big enough (3-4 inches) to make sure you get an accurate measure.
I found this a while back when looking for something on gauge and thought it was helpful.
