I am knitting a cable afghan from the “Done By Monday” booklet. The instructions state to:
Cast on 112. Work in garter at for 8 rows, increasing 12 sts evenly across last row to 124 sts.
My question is WHY do they want me to increase across the last row (before starting the cables)?? Why can’t I just cast on 124 at the very beginning??? Will it come out any different??
What are your thoughts???
