Have you ever noticed how it takes many more cabled stitches than knit stitches to create the same amount of width in a knitted piece? This is because stitches for the cables are not actually "in" the knitting, they are skimming over the surface of the knitting and do not contribute to the overall width of stitches present in the garment. Since those cabled stitches are sitting on top of the other stitches, they can create a bulge or bump in a bound-off edge, which in turn can make seaming a shoulder or picking up stitches around a neckline more challenging and less polished. There are two solutions to this issue. One solution is to work a decrease across the cable stitches equal to the number of stitches that are used for the cabling and bind off. If you are binding off on a pattern row, the solution in that case is to work the cable and the bind off at the same time.
