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.
