Ok, after three scarves I have decided to tackle my first Jumper – Joukahainen.
Did a swatch and my gauge was spot (but.... knitted up my swatch flat and the jumper is made on a circular needle). I started the Jumper on Sunday and have only done 15 rows - the gauge appears to be more like 22 rather than 20. It is a pretty tight fit to begin with so there is not a lot to play with! Do I...
1. Relax and keep going for a while and check it again when I have more of it knitted up? (My swatch was Blocked too)
2. Start increasing over the body to gain an extra 20 stiches? (slight V shape but at least it will fit over my chest)
3. Give up now – Frog the bloody thing and start again using 5mm instead of 4mm???
Advice welcome - thanks guys!
