I am using worsted weight yarn and size US 8 needles. I am planning on making 25 or 30 blocks for the blanket each a different color and type of cable. Tell me. Which of these multiples in the cast on will work for 72 stitches cast on without too little or too much. I want to know because if at all I want to avoid doing garter. I mean it frames it but if I do garter it has to be on the outside. Here is the list of multiples: 1, 1+1, 1+5, 2, 2+1, 2+2, 2+3, 2+4, 3, 3+1, 3+2, 3+3, 3+4, 3+8, 4, 4+1, 4+2, 4+3, 4+4, 4+5, 5, 5+1, 5+2, 5+3, 5+4, 6, 6+1, 6+2, 6+3, 6+4, 6+5, 6+7, 6+8, 7, 7+1, 7+2, 7+3, 7+4, 7+5, 7+6, 7+8, 8, 8+1, 8+2, 8+3, 8+4, 8+5, 8+6, 8+7, 8+9, 8+10, 9, 9+1, 9+2, 9+3, 9+4, 9+5, 9+6, 10, 10+1, 10+2, 10+3, 10+4, 10+5, 10+6, 10+7, 10+8, 10+9, 10+10, 10+11, 11

Which of those out of all those multiples would work for 72 stitches? In other words which multiples would give you 72 with a certain number of repeats? I know that you are going to have to do a lot of multiplication and addition but you can do it. I don't know how long and wide it will be. After you figure that out we will have to consider repeats of rows and see which ones will give you 98 rows.

I am using blue yarn for the Cathedral Cable block I am working on right now. It is kind of a medium light blue.

So you're going to knit repeats of the cathedral cable block for the blanket? That'll be gorgeous.
The cast on will depend on the gauge (measure it slightly stretched over the pattern. Yes, this isn't precise, but it'll be close) and depend on the size blanket you want. For 5 blocks wide you would cast on 72x5=360sts; for 6 blocks, 432sts; for 7 blocks, 504sts and so on.
Again, depending on the row gauge, for 5 blocks in length, 98x5=490 rows; for 6 blocks, 588 rows. Better yet, knit until the end of a repeat block and measure how long the blanket is, then figure out if you want another tier of blocks.

Hi Caters! I don't know that you're going to find anyone here that will put in the time to do all this math for you I'd rather be myself.

You mentioned that you want to combine a number of cable patterns for your blanket, I found a beautiful throw on ravelry.com:

Cables Cubed Throw

Is it possible that the design of this throw in some way be translated to what you have in mind that you are wanting to knit?

I am not going to knit repeats of the Cathedral cable block. Each Block Is Going To Be a Different Cable with a cast on multiple that = 72 with a certain number of repeats. the repeats are not of the cathedral cable they are of the cable patterns in the other blocks so that I have 72 stitches per block and no that blanket while it is modular(several blocks joined together) it is not what I imagined my blanket would be. also I really want an answer to all these cast on multiples because that will help me narrow down the cables I can make. So will anybody do the multiplication of x(the number before the plus) and the addition of y(the number after the plus)? I will try to do the multiplication of x and the addition of y myself.

The number are small enough to easily work out all factors. For each number, Start with 1, then divide by 2, then by 3, etc. if it doesn't divide evenly, it's not a factor, and you can skip to the next number... They will eventually start duplicating, ie 2x36 = 36x2, so you don't have to work it twice. It's longer, but easier. HTH

I was just curious, Cater. For your avatar you have an animal cell pictured. Do you work in the sciences or with animals?

Now I will narrow it down to the multiples that will give me 72.

Here are the multiples that work:
1, 1+1, 1+5, 2, 2+2, 2+4, 3, 3+3, 4, 4+4, 5+2, 6, 7+2, 8, 9, 10+2, 11+6, 12, 14+2, 16+8, 18, 24, 36,

now we need to look at the row counts and see which ones will work for 98 rows. Also if you find any of the other x+y multiples to work for 72 stitches with no garter please tell me.
