My sweater doesn't fit!
Here's a brief history: I took a sweater class in which we made a cardigan. The class was led by a yarn rep and we had to use his yarns (Trendsetter). The yarn for this sweater cost over $150 as it was 2 yarns held double. I hated the cardigan pattern and it fit terribly. I ripped out the sweater and made Stefanie Japel's Cozy V Neck from Fitted Knits. I like the way the sweater looks and am very happy except one thing. It pulls up and then bulges around my waist. I tried to block it and pinned out the ribbing even with the body, but I unpinned it today and it's no better. Although it is a little longer!
I would like to (actually that's a lie, I wouldn't LIKE to but I have no other choice) rip back and reknit the bottom portion (it's top down) to fix the bulge. My worries are - will it work, will I have enough yarn, and will it ruin the yarn, which is already "distressed" from going through frogging once. If I do rip it, should I just go above where it bulges and then add some decreases and then knit the ribbing with a larger needle size? I initially did the body with 11s and the ribbing with 10s. So maybe 10.5?
I want to love this sweater!!! And I don't want to buy $50 more worth of yarn to redo the bottom, if the store even has any more.
