I am knitting this pattern from Knitty:
I did not make a gauge swatch, but here is what is happening.
My sleeve is turning out longer than it should be. So I checked my gauge now and see that the gauge is supposed to be:
20 sts/28 rows = 4" in stockinette stitch
and I’m getting:
20 sts/24 rows = 4".
So what do you do when part of your gauge is correct (sts) but the rows is wrong?
Also, for this pattern I’m supposed to increase 2 sts every 7 rows about 16 times. I still have 7 more increases left - can I increase 4 sts for only 3 more rows to shorten the sleeve, but still have the correct number of stitches?
