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 Last edited by Caters : 11-04-2013 at 01:10 AM.

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 Last edited by Caters : 11-03-2013 at 05:32 AM.

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. __________________ Knitting Help Videos Here!-

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.
