Okay, my first cabled sock turned out to be way too small. I think I know what I did that made it that way, but I’d like to run this by the more experienced knitters here.
I was using Silver’s pattern, which I have used very successfully three times before, in this very weight, but only in straight, plain knitting. So I thought I would adapt it to a cabled pattern. Seems simple.
Using the same number of CO stitches indicated for a sock weight yarn, I used an all around cable of 6 stitches with 3 stitches in between. But it’s way way too small, I can’t even fit it on my foot.
Is it because of the cable that the same number of stitches that worked before are now not enough? If I use a cable in the pattern, do I automatically need to increase the CO stitches, to offset the cable?
Thanks all – hope you can help me out!!!
