My racquet is 16x18, i am doing one piece with tension 58. when i finish 14mains,8on right 6on left, i am ready to tie the right side .
I heard that its better to higher then tension of last string by 3 or 4 lbs, so i change the tension to 62,and the tie a knot.
I forgot the change back the tension to 58 and keep going and finish the two other mains on the left and finish all the cross.
I am just wondering what this would happen?

4lb difference is not a big deal.
It may not play as expected, but no real damage done.
You'll know better next time, I'm sure. :)

the result is a stiffer string bed and smaller sweet spot. not a big deal.
