I am hoping for a bit of help for someone - me - who is returning to sweater knitting after 25 years of scarfs and non guage critical projects. I have knitted a swatch and the number of stitches seems to be right on but the number of rows seems to create a slight rectangle rather than a square.
I know if I was small or large in both directions I should consider changing my needle size but since my length is only a row or so generous can I go ahead?
I am doing a simple cardigan from a Paton pattern. I would appreciate some advice. Thanks in advance.
