Cast off 6 sts at beg of next 2 rows** - Only on the next 2 rows. Then you go to the decreases which are on the RS rows -
"1st row. K1, SL1, K1, psso, patt to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1." which decs on both the beg and end of the row; and work the WS rows - "2nd row. p2, patt to last 2 sts, p2."
After you do these 2 rows 10 more times you have 42 sts. Or don't count the rows and just repeat them until there's 42 sts left. The 'patt' is the rib/cable pattern that you've been doing up till now, just continue that. If there's not enough sts at the beginning and end of the rows with the cast offs and decs to do a cable, then just do the sts in plain rib (knit and purl sts).
