Oh good point. I always figure to make as many rows between the cables as there are stitches in it. A 6 st cable (3 and 3), 6 rows; a 10 st cable - 10 rows.

Oh, wow, Suzeeq - now that you've said it that way, it seems so obvious. I never thought about calculating a cable modification with that formula before. I will have to remember tht one!!

thanks!

Embarrassed to say that I'm lost with this instruction. 6 rows between the cables?

You only do the cable, crossing the sts, only on one row, the other rows are similar to ribbing. Usually you start a cable pattern in the `middle' between crossovers. So for a 6 st cable, you work 3 rows, cross on the 4th row, then the regular pattern for 5 rows and cross again on the 10th row.
