If you can post the ravelry link we can see what it looks like, and it's okay to post just a few rows so we can understand where the incs go and how it's worded.
Thanks Sue - so here is the part of the pattern I am struggling with
There are 41 sts, marker, 119 sts, marker, 41 sts
Increasing 1 stitch before and after markers (work increased stitches into the pattern) every 6th row 6 times
cable pattern is as follows
Row 1: (C5B, k3) to last 5 sts, C5B
Row 2: p1, (k3, p5) to last 4 sts, k3, p1
Row 3: k1, (p3, k5) to last 4 sts, p3, k1
Row 4: as row 2
Row 5: k1, (k3, C5B) to last 4 sts, k4
Row 6: (p5, k3) to last 5 sts, p5
Row 7: (k5, p3) to last 5 sts, k5
row 8: as row 6
CB5: slip 4 sts on CN and hold behind, k1, slip 3 of 4 sts on CN back to left needle. bring CN with 1 stitch forward. then p3 from left needle and k1 from CN

Thanks for all the help!
