I think i know what the answer will be so here goes, im knitting a cardigan 4-5 yrs, ive done this pattern so many times i should be able to get it spot on, some how when picking up the sts to make the band I found out that im sts short :curse:in one place im 15sts out :censored: Am i right in thinking that i will have to unpick the front pieces from the back and sleeves and re knit them :banghead:

Sweetpea, before you unpick anything, remove the banding stitches and then hold the two fronts together to see if they are even - maybe I have the wrong end of the stick but if they are even, then it's just a question of picking up the stitches for the bands in groups, so you stay the same each side.

I hope that makes sense.
