This sweater is just going to have to fit without me trying it on again!
Rubberbands or point protectors on the ends if you're nervous about it. And you know. I've had a few fall off, but they only drop a couple rows at most so I just pick them up and put 'em back on the needle. As long as you don't stretch out the edge more than you need to get it on and off, it's fine. I usually don't try it on after I've divided for the sleeves anyway; at that point I can also measure it flat and take that into consideration too.
