Question about increased stitches...
I am making my son a sweater and i am about 5" into the back of it. (He is a size 6) I have accidently added 4 stitches. Do I need to rip it out, or would it be ok to just stitch them two together for a few rows until I am back where I started?

Thank you!!

I, too, would just decrease until I'm back where I should be.
