How do I fix this mistake?
I am knitting a baby hat in the round using double pointed needles. With the pattern I have, an even 28 stitches are on each needle. I am now well into the hat, and have finished with the pattern part of it that has diamonds, etc, and am now just doing basic knitting.

I did a count, and noticed that one of my needles now has 29 stitches, but the others have 28. So, I gained a stitch (accidental increase) somewhere in the last round or so. I checked them all carefully, and cannot find where I did it or where the yarn might have split.

So, how do I fix this mistake? Do I combine two stitches now, or wait until I do crowning? The decrease part of the pattern will be off if I keep that extra stitch. Any suggestions?
