You see, that's an example where I would personally prefer to re-knit it! I can't imagine handling more than one increase--I think the headache would just be too much for me! Plus, you have to wonder about the resulting garment. It might have the right number of stitches, but it would still be the same width as before. When you knit the next row, it might ruffle a bit, like you just added 8 stitches on that row. Right? I would think.... ???
But it's interesting to hear you say you'd be up to the task! Perhaps this is one of those personal questions, where each knitter has their own preference... not surprising I suppose!
