Hi, I am happy to see that someone else is knitting this bag. You are farther along than I am. On Row 2 and alt. rows, did you just knit and purl or did you knit the T5B's etc. As you can see from my previous questions, I have started over as my first attempt was unsuccessful. As far as your question, the directions say to cont in pat keeping cont of Panel Pat and cable, so I would say you repeat. The store I got my pattern from has one on display and it was very pretty. Hoping we both are successful in doing this project. Will be anxious to hear of your progress.

Those 4 rows are the established pattern. You need to repeat them. as dhar35 said.
Repeating 12 rows of panel A, & the 4 rows of cable panel, at same time.
