Hi, I just finished one panel of a blanket that has three panel sections. I still have two to go. It is a cable pattern and my question is, do I block it and if so what happens to the cables; do they end up flat and should I block the finished one now or wait and do all three at the same time? I love this forum, everyone is so helpful and aren't we the most interesting group of people on the planet. I am always learning something of value from you.

Blocking will not flatten your cables. I block cabled items all the time. As for blocking the first panel, go ahead and do it as you go, it will make the task less monumental when all three are finished.

Thanks, this is my first attempt at cables and I was not sure if they were treated differently than other knitted items. I will do it as I go. I am making this for my grandson who is to arrive in August. Hopefully I will have it finished by then.

Just don't over due the steam if you steam block because that will flatten them a little. Also if you block the panels separately just make sure they are blocked to the same size, I'm just saying... :-D
