My sweater is too big. Is there anything I can do???
I knit a gauge swatch. I followed the pattern (Weekend Warrior from the Yarn Girl's Guide to Simple Knits) but I guess I am smaller than the pattern's size small. My sweater is way too huge and boxy, not cute and slim the way it looks in the picture. I wish it were like sewing and I could just 'take it in' but somehow I doubt that...
Is there anything I can do besides taking it apart and starting over??

This site tells you how to do just that and it works because I've done it

Thank you so so much!! That will work so much faster than re-knitting the whole darn thing. (This particular yarn has already been a scarf, a hat, a poncho, a v-neck sweater...and all were frogged because I was just not satisfied!) Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
