Pre-knitting jittery

I can't believe I'm experiencing this for the cable cardigan. Am I losing confidence or what? The cardigan seems too large for my liking. Take a look at the comparsion between my favourite cardigan and the ribbings. There's about 1.5 inch extra which means 3 inch extra. Furthermore, according to the instructions, there's a need to increase stitches. The final results will be at least 6 inches bigger then my usual garments. I don't think i need something so big in my wardrobe. I'm thinking through whether to carry on this project.

It's supposed to work out to 18 inches width and when you make the increases to do the cables, the pattern should "pull in" with all that cable work. Plus, this is a more bulky knit than our thinner cardigans, so you would need more ease, right? Why don't you go on to the cables part, I'm sure it will work out by then. Good luck!

Did you knit a swatch for the cable? Maybe you should do that if you didn't and adjust the pattern accordingly for your body. It will be very sad to have to frog it later if its too big...

Maybe try to get a smaller gauge (change yarn or needle)?
