You only cable on a knit row. On the purl side, you will generally knit the knits and purl the purls. It helps if you can tell which are which. Knit stitches look like little V's and purl stitches look like the turtle neck on a turtle neck sweater. Cabling isn't that hard. You're only doing it every fourth or sixth row or whatever, depending on your cable directions specified amount. The rest of the rows are all straight knitting, so you do need to know what the stitches look like. It beats having to count or be chained to the pattern if you can just eyeball it.
