Hi, fairly beginner level knitter here.
I have knitted cable before, but I’m doing something wrong in this pattern for a cowl and would appreciate some help.
Foundation row:K4,(K1,P1)twice.P4,K11,Rep from once more.(K1,P1)twice,P4,K4
Proceed in pat as follows:
1st:K1,K1below.Work 1st row cable panel(K1below,P2)twice.K1below.Rep fromonce more. Work 1st row cable panel.K1below.K1.
2nd:K2.(Work 2nd row cable panel.K7)twice.Work 2nd row cable panel.K2.
These 2 rows form pat. Cable panel pat is now in position.
Keeping cont of cable panel pat, cont in pat etc.
So, I do the foundation row. The first and second rows, where it says “1st row cable panel” and “2nd row cable panel” I follow the 1st & 2nd rows in the cable panel (12 stitches) and just follow the instructions.
Next, I repeat these 2 rows(the ones after the foundation row)
For the next row, I’ve been following the 5th cable pattern row but with 54 stitches cast on and 12 stitches for the cable pattern there are stitches left over.
Writing this out, a little spark has gone on, and maybe I’m just meant to keep repeating the 2 rows after the foundation row and where it says cable panel insert the 1st, 2nd , 3rd rows etc. So
for the 5th row where I’ve just been doing the cable panel and getting left over stitches, I should follow the 1st row of the 2 pattern rows and insert 5th row of the cable panel?
My head hurts.
