Stretchy Yarn?

Ok folks, how do you deal with yarn that gets very stretchy and has a lot of give when it knits up? For example, if you know the finished piece must be 20" but the knitted piece has a lot of give, do you compensate and knit less?


Any thoughts out there?


Thanks in advance,


Kerry
