Again I can post pics tonight, as long as I do it before I start knitting. Once that happens I'm done for the night.
I'd say, yes. I'm horrid at math but if they're getting 5.5 sts/in. and you're getting 8 sts/in, there is an appreciable difference.
108 / 5.5 = 19.6"
108 / 8 = 13.5"
Thank goodness for calculators!
I see two options: Do more stitches and adjust the decreases accordingly or use larger needles.
To gauge your stitch count accurately you'll probably need to work several inches. There is a video here about swatching in the round but I can't find it now. I have a really hard time finding the videos I need here. I'll try again and if I can find it and check back to give you the link.
ETA: Found it! On youtube I could search to find it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ivCho4KvB3g
