How to make this pattern Bernat # 471wider by 6 cables please

Hello and welcome!!!

What is this a pattern for? When I looked up “Bernat 471” it was a baby bunting and bonnet.

Is that the right one??

@Knitcindy, this post from Seldom30 came to my mailbox by mistake:

"Sorry I transposed #’s. 741

Shadow cable baby blanket have tried increasing cast on by 8’s that doesn’t work :frowning::upside_down_face: "

···

Normally I would just add cables in groups of 8. So I would add 48 sts. But this Afghan has an increase row before the cables start and I can’t figure out how many to cast on AND how many to increase by!!!

I agree, add in 48sts to the body of the blanket for a total of 136sts. It’s a bit of an estimate on the cast on but casting on 108 and then increasing 28 sts to 136 should work.
