Change of plan and shall I or shan't I?

This the throw I posted about using up my sweet pea coloured yarns. Well as I was folding it up it wouldn't square up, why ??
Yes... you might have guessed I had increased the stitches so the top was as much as 4 inches wider than the cast on edge. I 'd show you a picture,  but I am so devastated that I could do that without noticing, I ashamed to show it.  To put it right means a lot of rip-it rip-it, can I do that? Would you?

I will have to,  even though it means undoing probably half, but I know I 'll never be happy with it, so I 'm starting this afternoon to rip it back.. and my pleasure is in the making so I will enjoy the crocheting even though it will take me a while. I 'm not doing anything else!!

Oh dear Chris, I'm sorry you're not happy with the final measuring. For me (who spends a lot of time unpicking) I would only of unpicked it early on, eg first 20 -30 rows maybe.
If it's thrown over the sofa, it shouldn't be noticeable.
All the best whatever you decide, it's important to be pleased with it. Cathy x

Perhaps we can see there in the photo where the mistake happened. Hard luck. I would fix it, too.

Such a shame Chris. Only you can decide if to rip it back or not.
