Hi everyone. I am at the point on my Sunrise where I am up to the WS knit row before I start the hem for the left front. Problem is, the front of the jacket looks too small (too narrow). Yes, I swatched before starting and tried many needle sizes to get it right (and my gauge was perfect!), but as I've knit this (back piece included) I seem to end up with a row gauge that's different. Meaning, the back piece, while OK in width, is a bit short in length (about 2 inches, total). I'm OK with the shorter length, but problem is that as I've been knitting in a radius (some rows 'sideways') it seems that this problem with row gauge has affected the width of the front. Just wondering if anyone has any clever ideas for how to make it wider across the front without mucking up the whole thing. I guess I could continue on with the pattern for the next size up and knit another 10 or so rows, but I'm concerned that then the length of the front pieces will then be longer than the back piece. I know I could get a little bit of extra width by blocking, maybe that's a better solution?
Thanks in advance for any help!
