I have recently started knitting, I've made my way through some small projects, and now I have started a very easy sweater. The front and the back are identical squares, that are sewn together at the top, apart from a hole for the head. I have just finished one of the pieces, and to my horror, it is 10 cm. too wide. I really don't get it, because I measured it a couple of times while knitting, I guess not thoroughly enough. Anyway, here is the question:
Do I have to unravel everything, and start over, or is there some easier/quicker way to undo the damage? e.g. make the "identical" piece narrower, and that way compensate? I suppose the sweater will look very strange if I do that, the sleeves will be in a very awkward position.
thank you in advance
