I am new to knitting, and have what I believe is common problem to new knitters. Working a pattern that calls for 96 stitches, I came up with two extra stitches.
I have several questions: Will an extra stitch or two affect the outcome of the pattern?
Before I posted this thread, I went ahead and decreased one stitch on each end to come up with 96. Did I do the right thing by decreasing a stitch on each end? Will this affect my pattern? Will I have to start all over??
Is there some other way to make the correction in the number of stitches?
Please help as this is my very first sweater for my grandson’s birthday!:knitting:
