If you do k2p2 ribbing across 50sts (as in the green scarf photo), the cables will align with the ribbing. Do the ribbing and when you're ready to start the cable pattern, begin with k2p2, C6F etc, the cable cross row. The purl ditch "disappears"in the middle of the C6F cable.
Cast on of 38sts will work too (3 cable columns instead of 4).
