Hello, I'm having trouble with a pattern for a cardigan that I'm making for my Mum. It says to start at the bottom with 297 stitches and a 4mm hook and later changing to a 3.5mm hook. I did the tension square and worked out that I need a 3mm hook to get the right tension but when I finished the 16" I need before I start on the armholes (which took over a week) I realised the edges weren't straight and when I lie it out on the floor it curves where the foundation chain is tight but my tension has loosened throughout the rows. I can't really go down any more on the hooks as it's worsted weight wool and a 2.5mm catches the wool too much plus I'm getting cramp in my hands from trying to get a tight stitch. Does anyone know how I can get the right tension throughout, I don't really want to undo it all but I'm starting to think I'm going to have to Thanks!!
