Too few stitches

dear knitters,

i’m making slow but steady progress on the back of the sweater i’m making (my first!), but realized this morning that i’d forgotten to increase somewhere and now have one less stitch than i should. how big a deal is this? should i go back and try to figure out where i missed the increase? should i not worry? is there a way to compensate for this now?

any help would be much appreciated.

best,
historienne

For one stitch, it should be okay. You can add an extra one if you can figure out which edge it shoulda been on, but probably won’t make a difference.

Nothing is worth frogging for one stitch!
