I have been working on the sleeves of a cardigan, it says to:
inc 1 sts each end of the needle every 1 inch 16 times. then work even untill piece measures 19 1/4 inches.
then shape cap: at beg of each of next 2 rows bind off 6 sts
row3: k2,k2tog, work to last 4 sts, sl1, k1, psso, k2
row4: p2, work to last 2 sts, p2.
rep last 2 rows 19 times more. at beg of the next 6 rows bond off 3 sts.
ok so my problem is: My piece measures 19 1/4 inch already and i’ve only done the inc each side 13 times instead of 16. I thought this wont be a problem as i could continue on to shape the cap. But as i was binding off the 6 sts i was wondering if maybe as i left out 3 sts each side does that mean everything else changes too? ie: instead of 19 times dec each side should i only do it 16 times? instead of binding off 6 sts should i only do 3??
Can anyone help me?
