I’m planning my first big, huge blanket.
I want to knit into it, some of those dishcloth patterns.
Each separate dishcloth has 36 cast on sts., except for one.
So, I’ll be using 5 dishcloth patterns, strung all together, as the top of the blanket.
That will be 180 stitches, needed. Is that going to be too much for a cable to handle?
And, do I draw out the pattern, on paper, and knit across, like, for the first row, for the first 4 rows, I will be knitting across, to make the border, then,row 5, for the first square, I k3,p30,k3, then, for the 2nd square, I k3, p30,k3, for the 3rd square, i k3,p29,k3, and on and on, till I reach the end of ALL of the 5 rows?
Then, I knit ALL of the 6th rows,
then, all of the 7th rows, and so on?
Is that how I do it?
I’m tired. Am I making sense?:passedout:
I just came home from work.
Anyways, that’s neither here nor there, but, is that what I do?
to make the pattern correctly?
