HELP with a pattern
 
Hello

I am going to attempt to cable knit with this cell phone caddy pattern. I thought something small would be easier...HA!

Anyway I understand that C2F means cable 2 to the front, and so on, however on this pattern, am I supposed to cable 2 to the front and then my next 2 stitches also use a cable needle to the front?? It is not telling me what to do with the cable stitches. I hope you can help. That portion of the pattern is pasted below. Thank you.

Cast on 32
row 1 - K2, [P4, K4] rep to last two stitches, K2
row 2 - P2, [K4, P4] rep to last two stitches, P2
unless stated, repeat rows 1 on right side & 2 on wrong side

row 7 - K2, P4, c2b, c2f, P4, K4, P4, c2b, c2f, P4, K2
*
row 10 - P2, K4, c2f(p), c2b(p), K4, P4, K4, c2f(p), c2b(p), K4, P2

Please don't post the same thread twice. It's not necessary. This is the correct forum for questions.

Can you post a link to the pattern? Does your pattern have instructions, they usually do.

The number in the cable term shows how many sts are involved in each cable. So for c2b, you put 1 st on the cable needle, hold in back and k1 from the L needle and knit the held one, then do a c2f on the next 2 sts, holding 1 st to the front, k1 from the L needle. The pattern should explain this at the top, before the cast on instructions.

WONDERFUL....!!! Thank you so very much. That's just the thing, any pattern I have read before has an explanation of the abbreviations, but this one doesn't have any explanations. But thank you so much, this was a wonderful help!!!!
