First, a brief introduction - I'm Marge, age 50, mother of five, married 20 years, have been knitting off and on since I was a kid. I really enjoy knitting but want to improve. I'm glad to have found this group where I can ask questions.
Here's my question: I have a pattern for a vest that uses seed stitch and cable stitch. It gives the gauge for seed stitch (17 sts/32 rows = 4") but it does not give the gauge for cable stitch. I have learned, from my past mistakes, that I need to make a gauge swatch and block it. Also that I should check my gauge as I go through the project. I'm okay as far as the seed stitch goes, but what about the cable? Would the gauge be the same as the seed stitch? Or how would I make a conversion? Since the vest begins with cable stitch, I want to be able to check to make sure I'm on track before it's too late.
