I'm also continental knitter with generally loose stitches (which I love as it gives me plenty of room to make each stitch and my work has always been even). I've been working on a project where the yarn combo/needle size was creating much looser knit rows than pearl rows, which has never really happened to me before... Rather than mess with needle sizes too much (because I didn't want to rip a bunch of rows to start over with smaller needles) I added a gentle tug to my pearl rows (to tighten up the following knit row) as I formed and ended each stitch... This helped a ton. Perhaps something like this, combined with decreasing needle sizes, could help?
