Cable Cast On Issue
I have a pattern and it wants me to cable cast on 314 stitches. It was very difficult for me to cast on the 25 stitches I needed for the gauge swatch. I knit very tight and I kept having to take them off and recast them cause it was too tight to slide down my 13 needle.
What is the point of cable cast on? Do I have to use it? Can I use long tailed cast on instead?
It's a lace pattern from French Girl Knits.
