top down sweater too large???
help! After a long hitaus from knitting I attempted to tackle a top down sweater in worsted weight wool and it's much too large. Any suggestions? I'd need to gain 40 pounds for it too fit. Thx!

Is it a raglan? If so you can change your rate of increasing so you have more plain rounds between increase rounds. Then it won't get as wide as fast, if that makes sense.

There is no right way to knit; there is no wrong way to knit. So if anybody kindly tells you that what you are doing is "wrong," don't take umbrage; they mean well. Smile submissively, and listen, keeping your disagreement on an entirely mental level. They may be right, in this particular case, and even if not, they may drop off pieces of information which will come in very handy if you file them away carefully in your brain for future reference. ~Elizabeth Zimmerman
