Tension issues

I have come across a problem I never had before and the mind boggles as to how to solve it. I am knitting Ursula by Kate Davies and the swatch requires 30 sts and 38 rows on 4 inches.
I first swatched with 2.75 mm as indicated by pattern and got 4inches on 38 rows but 3.15 inches on 30 sts.

So I moved up a needle size, so now on 3mm I get
4.5 inches on rounds count but 3.75 inches on sts count.

I think I should go with 2.75 mm and perhaps knit one size up but keep the length of the the size I was going for, would that be the right thing to do?

Really not sure and hope i can get can help.

Thank you
