2 Extra Stitches?

Hello KAL Buddies,

Quick question. I've started the sleeves (knitting both at the same time) and I just noticed that I had cast-on two extra stitches. I'm knitting up the size 44 and it requests cast-on 46 stitches, I did 48 and really didn't notice until now.

The only thing I think can be a problem is placement of the cable along the arm. Since now the cable repeat section isn't centered on the sleeve, it's off by two. The only way I see in fixing it, is possible only increasing on one side to make up for the difference on the other. AND does anyone foresee a huge MUST RE-KNIT problem ahead?

I think when you seam up the sleeves, your ribbing might be a bit mismatched?

When you do the other sleeve, you'll have to skew your cable two stitches in the other direction. At least that's what I'd do. . .

I'd agree with Pam--when you do the second sleeve, cast on the same number of stitches, and mirror-image the cable placement. Unless your arms are super-skinny, you shouldn't have to fiddle with the increases at all. Keep us posted!
