For my second knitting project (I love to overreach myself) I started the Transformers Toque for my son. Sadly, my MIL, whom I asked to buy me some 4 ply, bought 5 ply instead and my gauge was off. I went down to the next size of DPNs I have and stated knitting. Well, it turns out that I am a tight knitter (plus, I didn't gauge) and, now that I am at Row 26, I think the toque will only be about 14 inches around.

I really don't want to unravel what I have done, but had the idea that maybe I could just finish the charted part of the knitting, bind it off then make something with that?  A bag? It would be tiny 6 x 7 inches? Um, any other suggstions?

TIA

if i where you i should consider to unravel it. it oftens feel better afterwards- i made a bag a year ago that didnt turn out well, and i tried to make it to something else, but i just felt the disappointment over the ugly bag, and couldnt let go until i frogged it and started over. it was a relief when it was done. i know, its so boring to unravel, but afterwards it feels great Smiley
good luck!

What kind of yarn are you using?  If you frog it (rip it, rip it,...get it?), you'll want to give it a bath to get the yarn to relax (see Knitting Daily for a tute.).
