cable stitches and holes
Helloo guys really need help I'm worried that do I need to open 50 rows now I'm very close to finish the sweater
I just saw that the sweater had cable stiches and the stich after the cable stich done and the next stich has a hole between and looseness
How should I fix it
I'm afraid once I block the sweater won't the stich or that thread would bcome loose and won't it tear froom there. After its worn
What should I do and mend it???
And what should be taken care while doing cable stitches
Does this always happens or its my mistake :(

Don't worry, we may not need a picture. This is normal with cables, it's because the sts are crossed. If you pull down on your work a little, it's less obvious and when you're done and wash the sweater it probably won't be noticeable. If you try to knit tighter that makes it worse, so keep a loose to normal tension on the cable stitches.
