I’m making Wicked, and I just did my gauge swatch. I’m way off. Instead of 18 stitches/4 inches, I got 21 stitches. The problem is, I’d have to go up a needle size at least to get it right, but I don’t want the fabric any looser. So, I’m thinking that I’ll just do the larger size. Because it’s a top-down raglan anyway, it’s pretty customizable. So, as long as I try it on to make sure it’s long enough, or not too long, at the arms, I should be okay, right?
On the same note, to make it even more confusing for me, I’m considering casting on the next smallest size for the neck, so it’s not as wide, and then increase more to get it back to the right number. Is there anything I should be aware of before trying this?
Thank you so much!
