I'm working on this baby blanket for the Debbie Macomber/Project Linus Mother's Day charity knitting. In all the years I've been knitting I have never twisted the cable on the first cable row. By the time the pleats started to form on the border I was too far in to frog the blanket. The effect sort of grows on you but I don't think I'll do it again.

Yarn is Vanna's baby yarn in bluebell...blue with a slight lavender tint to it.

I've seen many patterns that have you start the cable cross on the first row - hats, sweaters, socks.... I haven't seen the result "pleat" as much as yours does, but usually it comes after a rib section, rather than garter... That may be what is causing the difference.

The border isn't garter stitch; it's seed stitch which I chose to do rather than the garter stitch.

Apologies - it was difficult to see that part on my screen.... Still, though, the seed stitch is a "flat" fabric like garter, but the rib will naturally have a ripply texture, so that might be the difference still in the "pleats" effect.

Thank you for showing us this and the effect of twisting on the first row. Nice work.

I love seed stitch borders, too. Making one on an afghan now.

This is just beautiful.

No need to apologize...no offense taken. I appreciate your take on the pleating effect.

I think its an adorable blanket and I love the pleats whether they are supposed to be there or not. Makes it a very unique work. :D
