I’m making a baby blanket for my nephew. This is my 3rd project where the first two said that gauge wasn’t critical. Now on my 3rd project, I didn’t think about measuring the gauge until I’m getting close to the halfway mark. No way am I going to start over now…
So the pattern is start with 5 stitches, knit first row then each row knit 3 yo knit til end until you get to 126 stitches then you start to decrease. Its supposed to be 36’ inches square in the end. Guage is supposed to be 9 sts and 18 rows but mine is 14-15 sts and 12 rows.
I currently have 110 sts and it’s 21 inches wide. I’m thinking the best thing to do to continue w/o redoing it is to keep following the same pattern until I get to being 36 inches long then start the decreasing pattern.
Am I right with this or should I throw in the towel and start over?
