Hello fellow knitters,
I would consider myself to be a fairly advanced Aran pattern knitter, but I just can’t seem to get my head around this problem and what solution might be the best.
I have some old books with traditional aran cable patterns examples in them, and I would like to combine some of them into a scarf pattern. However some of the cables I want to use start on the wrong side and some on the right. I have thought of a few ways to get around this problem but would like to get some advice from others.
- I could just add in a row of seed stitch/garter stitch on the first row for the cables that start on the wrong side.
- I could skip the first row of the cables and begin with row 2 so that they start on the right side too, but then my rows will be uneven and I will be ending the cables at different points when I cast off and to me it won’t look right if one cable ends on a completed round and the others only half way.
I would appreciate any advice and guidance you could give me with this problem and look forward to your insight.
If you have any questions or need some clarification do please let me know!
