Help with Knitpick's Seaman's Scarf
Hi everyone,

Hope everyone's knitting is going smoothly.

I finished the Besotted scarf for my mom, and tonight started the Seaman's Scarf from Knitpicks for my dad.

http://www.knitpicks.com/Seaman's+Scarf_PD50545220.html

The cable part of the pattern is a little confusing. Is it written the way it is in expectation that the knitter will do it without using a cable needle? Here's the cable section from the pattern:

8 Row Cable Sequence with 3 stitch garter stitch border:
Row 1 of Cable Sequence (RS): Slip 1 as if to purl with yarn in front, K2, * P2, slip next 6 stitches off left needle, use left needle to pick up the 2 far right stitches leaving the other four stitches in the front, use the right needle to place the middle 2 stitches on the left needle, finally use the right needle to place the far left 2 stitches
onto the left needle, k6 * repeat between asterisks ending with P2, K3.


It isn't truly complicated, but I haven't tried to do a cable pattern written like this before. Hope someone can advise me so I'll know what's going on!

Thanks!
