I just bought a pattern to make a cute baby outfit. I cast on and I did a gauge and mine is FOUR inches LARGER than its suppose to be after I measured it. They suggest using size TWO and THREE needles which I bought both of yesterday. What do I do now...go buy the size ONE??? I have not been known to knit loose. Lately I've been so frustrated with my knitting.

I'd just reduce the number of stitches and change the gauge however you could just change the needles. However, is the yarn you're using the same as the pattern asked for? As sometimes using a different yarn than recommended will lead to that problem.

I was just going to ask if you are using a different yarn than suggested. That could greatly affect your gauge.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
