Hey all hope everyone's summer is well. I have a little issue and need some help...ie I just need someone to say rip it out and stop fretting...lol
My parents came out to visit and my father was looking through my copy of opinated knitter... Ok so he knew I wanted to make him something but I didnt guide him...lol. Anyway he loved the cabled sweater and he sent my mother with me to LYS and she picked out a lovely dark green Cestari. Which is a thinner but since it is EZ ...I just went with it as it was great that my dad wanted...well I just finished the Tree of Life ribbing and well... the right side of the tree is great...the middle is perfect but every left hand side of the tree is wonky looking. It looks like I made a mistake and well since my father is 6'4 and about 66 inches around.... I dont think I repeated it..lol...cause it all looks the same.
I brought it with me to LYS and others were like oh it wont show...but I know. I did swatch out the sweater to get gauge and did swatch the two main cables, but I didnt do the tree of life.
Here is my question finally.... do I go down a needle size on the ribbing? Or just keep knitting up and see how the cables start to show? I have attached a pic but it is poor as the light wasnt great and it is hunter green.
