I am making this blanket and have decided to frog it and start over for two reasons. I am not happy with the size, it needs to be bigger so I am going to double the width.
And, I am not happy with the way the cables pucker at the start. My question is how to avoid the pucker. I noticed on another pattern by Debbie Bliss that when you start the cables you increase 2 stitches for each cable. This pattern has no such increase.
Do you think I should M1 x2 for each cable across and increase the knitted strips between accordingly? OR, another pattern has you change to a needle size that is two times larger than the edging. Would that alone ease the pucker?
This pattern is Aunt Pearl’s cabled Baby Blanket from For the Love of yarn.com
