Hi - I am about half way through knitting the back of Zoe Mellor’s Little Star sweater and having measured it I am v disappointed to discover that my gauge is off (I know, didn’t knit a swatch, my own fault!!). I did get the feeling as I was going along that it was a bit loose and lo and behold it is going to end up too big if I carry on so am going to frog back to the ribbing and start again. :crying:
My question is this - should I just try to knit more tightly on the same needles (3 3/4 mm as suggested) or should I try smaller needles and knit the same?
This is only my 3rd project (lovely baby cardi first, which actually went quite well and a sock which has started what I fear will become a full-on addiction) so I am pretty rubbish still - I have a nasty feeling the answer will be to swatch until I get the tension right - hope not!!!
Grateful for any and all advice!
