I am very new, and very confused. I am trying to knit a sweater but after I cast on the right nunber of stitches, there are not enough stitches on the needle to complete the row. For instance. I started with 50 stitches. There is a 12 stitch cable panel, with 19 stitches on each side of the markers for the panel. instructions say k2,*p5,k2* to end of row, while knitting the cable panel stitches. When I get to the first marker at the panel, I can only purl 3 and then must start the panel, therefore not completing the pattern stitches. I hope someone understands what I am asking. How can I make this pattern work?
I can't thank both of you enough! I've been struggling with this dilemma for a week. Your quick and obvious now that I know) solution made my day and now I can continue to make my sweater ;-). Thank you both again. I am so hooked on knitting, I can't tell you!
