Help!! I made a cardigan, plain old stockinette with garter cuffs. Should have been easy, but it's the biggest problem I've ever had. Finally got it done, and the first time it got washed the sleeves stretched like mad, with a very weird shrink in at the same time, so I said I'd shorten the sleeves. Rather than taking out the whole sleeve and doing it again, I thought I could cut it down and knit from the problem to the cuff. It looked terrible. Ripped it back out. Is there any way I can just knit down the 3-4 inches I need to, or do I have to start from scratch? Again. Thanks for your help.

Janice, I can't help you except to express my sympathy! It sounds terrible. What kind/brand of yarn did you use? I hope all your hard work doesn't go to waste and someone finds a way to help. I will send good vibrations your way. (LOL)
