Cathedral Cable block blanket
I am making a blanket for myself. I am now making a cathedral cable block for my blanket. It has like 98 rows and 72 stitches and so everything else would have to be a multiple of something that divides evenly into 98 and 72. It will go in the center of the blanket. I am on the 3rd or 4th row. Here is a link to the pattern: http://www.knittingfool.com/StitchIn...?StitchID=2235

Factors of 72 and 96
It would be nice if somebody could give me a list of all the factors of 72 and all the factors of 98 so that I can cast on multiples of a factor of 72 and if it is not a factor and it has a +x then I can multiply the multiple by a number that will get me close enough to it that when I add x stitches it will be 72. This would also help me with the row count. What do they mean when they say (multiples of x rows) + y rows? is it the same idea as (multiples of x stitches) + y stitches

I can't get your link to work. I think that perhaps more important than the number of rows and stitches is the measurement in inches of the width and length of the block. If this is a blanket with multiple pattern blocks, the different patterns may give different measurements even for the same number of rows and stitches. Cables will pull in the stitches and shorten the width compared to stockinette, for example.

Stretching after Bind off
I have noticed that after I bind off the gauge changes and the whole thing stretches like 6 inches stretching to 7 or 8 inches. Why is this? Why is it that it is the size I want on the needles but after I bind off it stretches 1 or 2 inches? and how would I measure the gauge of a cable because there the gauge changes with were you put your knitting gauge. It may be 5 or 4 possibly 6 sts per inch but with the cable it would be more when you put it on the cable.
