Does cabling necessarily increase the stitches needed?



I want to turn a cabled skirt pattern into a fair isle pattern without cabling. Can I just follow the pattern and simply ignore the cabling while I insert a fair isle pattern? Or will this change the size or number of stitches? Thank you.

Substitute cable with fair isle
by: Ratchadawan

It shouldn't be any problem as long as you maintain the same numbers of stitches as the cable pattern. For example if the cable pattern calls for 10 stitches, you will need 10 sts for your fair isle too.

Thank you for sending in your question.
Happy knitting!
