I’ve been knitting since I was a kid but only recently taught myself to knit cables. My husband wants a cardigan, which I could do without a pattern ordinarily. But he wants cables, and from what I can tell, cables narrow the width of what you’re knitting. I’m wondering if there’s any standard measurement for how much to adjust measurements to take that into account. So if I’m using a yarn that knits 10 stitches to an inch, for instance, would I consider that something like 12 stitches when cabling? 15? Am I making any sense?
Thanks in advance for advice. I’ve looked at patterns but I never use them and they don’t make much sense to me.
