It sounds like you may be making the largest size which calls for 103sts for the body of the sweater. At 4sts/inch which is the pattern gauge, that makes the body 26" at the chest as the pattern says. If you're really getting 5sts/inch (?) then you'd need 130sts at this point to get 26". Check you gauge on the back of the sweater over at least 4 inches. Or you can knit a few rows on the body and see what the entire body width measures. If it's smaller than you want, you'll need to increase some stitches.
