I’m Michelle in TN and found this forum by looking around for an answer to a question. I logged on, and this looks like a fun place! I’ve been knitting for 2.5 years and am embarking on my first cabled sweater. I made an Aran baby blanket this spring and loved cabling so I thought I’d try it out. I’m pleased to meet you all and look forward to hanging out here a little.
So is it too soon for a question? Oh, good, because this has me stumped. I cast on the specified number of stitches (146) and have worked across the first fow of my chart. The repeat is 34 stitches. I didn’t do the math and assumed that the 146 could be divided evenly by 34 so that I’d finish the chart at the end of each row. But no! I’m left hanging with 8 stitches I need to do something with. The pattern didn’t say anything like "begin chart on stitch #4; rather just cast on and start the chart. Any words of wisdom? Thanks in advance!
