Busy with the Cabled Cubed Throw. Pattern calls for 12 squares. Feel I should make more squares. How will it look if I put 16or even 20 squares together. Will it be too bulky then?

I agree with you- it needs an extra row at the top and the side. Do you enough yarn to do this? I don't think that adding an edge would give enough extra size to look good.

It's up to you. I don't know what you mean by too bulky, but, then I've made so very large afghans in my life. The latest crochet bedspread fills my large washing machine to capacity, but it fits.

Looks like 20 would do it. 4 squares across and 5 squares down. Should look terrific when all put together. Please let us see it when all finished.

Definitely - if you have enough yarn, make 20 squares.

I'm with you, it needs another top and side row. Looks beautiful so far, good luck!

Beautiful job. I love all the cables.

I THINK JUST ANOTHER SIDE ROW WOULD DO NICELY.

I agree with everyone who says to do 20 squares,think that would be a great size. The only problem would be the laundering but if you work out how much it would weigh you would be able to determine if a large machine would cope with it. It is looking fabulous,by the way,love cables,well done! 🐹

I always like a bit to hang over each side of the bed that way you know that there will be enough coverage for you if you want the cover adequate...Add more...

Thank you to all. Decided it will definitely be 20 squares. Now to the knitting needles with some speed😊

SOMETHING THIS SIZE SHOULD PROBABLY GET TAKEN TO A LAUNDROMAT AND RUN THROUGH A FRONT LOADER-NO AGITATOR.

I'm going with the popular opinion of 20 squares. Looks great so far

Maybe you could tie it all together with a nice border. That wouldn't add bulk unites but would make it bigger? Lovely work!

That is beautiful. Love the colour and the pattern but must agree it would benefit from the extra squares.
