cable crossing lands on purl side?!
Hi I'm a beginner knitter and I understand how to do cables skipping an odd number of rows before crossing again but I came to the conclusion while trying to make my own pattern that If I skip an even number of rows, eventually where the cable needs to cross is going to be on the purl side of the cable. and I've seen patterns like this before so I know it's possible but I just can't figure out how you would do that! I only know how to cross cables on the knit side. please help!!

Cables are done on RS rows (odd # rows). You don't want to do a cable on the WS rows because it would never been seen. I assume when you say "purl side" you mean the Wrong Side.

You can do cables on any Right Side row that you want to. I do cables on every RS row all the time. It depends on the design you want to create. There are thousands of possibilities. You definitely don't want to skip an odd # of rows.
