I’ve started a cable sweater but I’ve had to increase it by 20 stitches. It was OK doing the cable rib but I’m just about to start the main bit and realised I’ve bitten off more than I can chew. I guess the easiest thing is to add 10 stitches to the beginning and end end of each row (the pattern starts after the first 7 stitches on the 2 biggest sizes - I’ve added 20 stitches on to the biggest size as that was the increments the rest went up in if that makes sense) so each row begins and ends with,currently, a max of 7 purl on a right side and 7 knit on a wrong side.
Is my best bet just to change that to 17 and keep the rest of the pattern what it would be for the biggest size?
Here’s row 1 for biggest size …
