C5F clarification
Hello fellow knitters,

I have a question regarding C5F.
The pattern says, "sl 3 sts on to cable needle at front, k2, sl p st back on to LH needle and p it, k2 from cable needle"

My pattern states " b2, k2, (p1 C5F) twice, b2 (b2 is my seed stitches that creates the border to my cowl)

I understand all of it, except for "sl p st back onto LH needle and p it". Where did this purl stitch come from? So am I suppose to somehow bring that purl stitch I created before I cable back to my LH needle?

This explanation is very different from another C5F I found online which says to " Using the cable needle, slip the next 2 stitches onto it and hang in front. Knit the next 3 stitches on the left needle. Then, knit the stitches from the cable needle individually. " I'm assuming these two techniques are very different.

I am a visual learner, and I can't find videos or photos.

Any clarification would be appreciated!! This purl stitch is really throwing me off!
