hey all!

i need your help!  i finished my top down cardigan and have since discovered that i didn't put enough increases in the bottom half to make it fit in the comfortable way the top does...should i block it to fit, which might involve quite a bit of reshaping or rip out the bottom and start over? 

i haven't taken a picture of the finished project, which i probably should for this question, but here are some pictures from along the way...sorry for how dark they are!  i'm using malabrigo, which is perhaps the most orgasmic knitting experience i've ever had!  haha

zknits, what if you just unravel 4 inches or so and make little side vents (like a tunic)?  Would that help?
I have ripping out, but sometimes its worth it.
good luck!

Pmack - on your original top down the red one, How did you decide how many stitches to cast on for the collar? And how did you increase once you started with stockinette?

I picked up stitches around the neck for the collar after the sweater was finished. I used knit front and back for the raglan increases because I wanted the sweater to be as warm as possible so I didn't need decorative holey yarn over increases.

I used to do everything in my power to avoid picking up stitches but I'm slowly learning that a) it's not that awful and b) it makes the edge much sturdier.
