I am seeking advice on how to work woven cable stitch with moss stitch. I worked the bottom rows in rib stitch, changed to moss stitch and changed again to woven cable stitch. I am finding that woven cable stitch is very tight and shrinks my knitting piece by several inches, I added increases before starting the woven cable stitch but the piece still tightened up severely.
I am wondering if there is any way to knit woven cable stitch and have it remain loose and not as tight and dense. I have seen sweaters worked this way so I know it can be done but I have been unable to figure out how. I would like the piece to be one consistent width.
Any help would be appreciated.
I have attached a picture of my work at the bottom.
