Maybe I can drop down one needle size to compensate for the change in gauge?
That is to gorgeous to frog. The stranded section will naturally be tighter than straight knitting. Unless the looser panel bothers you or will affect the project, you could just keep on. It doesn't have to fit. Or just use a smaller needle if you're concerned.
