Or if not steps, at least inches.
After measuring the three inches I had knit of the seed stitch bottom band, I spread out on the needle and measured. Using my before washing gauge, I realized that I was knitting too loose. Drat. As I knit, I thought I may be knitting too tight and was constantly telling myself, loosen up. So I took a deep breath and......
Ribbit. I frogged back over 2 inches.
Then I put the Green Flowy Cardigan away for a while.
But when I pick it back up, I will knit tighter, you may be sure.
