I'm a new knitter, and I am working on my first sweater with cabling. I've done a few practice cable swatches, but I'm just not understanding the directions for the cable pattern as written for the 12 stitch cable pattern:
Row 1: K4, C2F, C2B, K4
Row 2 and alternate: Purl
Where I'm stuck is how to front and back without stitches in between...
My practice ones always directed to cable front, then knit. Anything I've tried has not ended well! Any advice would be appreciated
