I have just learned to knit from YouTube. I did knit a scarf and now I'm trying to knit a sweater. It's actually very simple for somebody who has knit before, but I'm having trouble with it. First of all I didn't do gauge. Is that really going to mess up my knitting? Because I'm rather far into it, in fact I'm just about finished the back. How much of a problem has that created? After I knit the back, it says cast off 32 stitches beginning next 2 rows so after I cast off 32 stitches what do I do with the rest of the stitches that are remaining do I continue working them? What I mean is when I cast off 30 stitches in the first row what do I do with the remaining stitches left because I know when I'm done casting off the second row it tells me to keep the remaining 35 stitches on a stitch holder. But I want to know is do I work those remaining stitches after I cast off the first row. I hope I'm explaining this well enough. Thank you so much for your time.
