See if you can find the source of the extra stitches. In the stockinette, you can always decrease somewhere near the edge or you can leave the extra stitch and account for it in the bind off or perhaps the center neck stitches. Do something similar for the lace and cable. See if you can see where the extra sts come from. It may be possible to correct them in the same column of sts so that you don’t throw either the lace or the cable pattern off. If they’re not too far back in the pattern, you may decide that it’s worth it to you to put in a lifeline (see video under Tips at the top of the page) and rip back to the mistake. Good luck whatever you decide to do and post a picture if you’d like when this sweater is complete.
