I have no idea how to ask this
I'm knitting a scarf that is cabled (I think) so when I flip to start the next row, sometimes I'm knitting on what was a purl stitch on the other side...does that make sense? It's fidgety knitting on what was once a purl stitch but I have been managing to do it.

I don't remember anyone commenting on this before - is it normal?

If you are cabling then yes, it might be a little more difficult to purl into the stitches on the cable.

Are you working on the scarf pattern you posted? If you are then those are not cables. Just keep going and it'll get easier.

That's not a cable pattern. It asks you to use a 'cable CO' which can be used for any pattern; its named that because the twist in the edge looks like a cable.

You just repeat the pattern row - K2, (K2, P1) repeat between ( ) 8 times, K2 - on all rows. With the right number of sts it comes out right; this is a kind of broken rib pattern, there's columns of knits, columns of purls and some that are like garter stitch.
