Hi and welcome.

Cables are done pretty much like ribbing except the rows where you cross the sts, which are just knitting them in a different order. On a chart you read the RS rows from right to left and the WS rows from left to right. So on this chart row 1 is the cast on and row 2 is a WS row, you go by the direction of the arrows.

What else do you need to know?

The symbols in the chart are a little vague. The open squares are knits and the horizontal bars are purls. When you cross for the cable (8sts held to the back, work the next 9sts and then the 8sts from the cable needle) there's a decrease and then an increase to keep the order of the knits and purls. After you move the 8sts to the cable needle, knit the next 2sts together, work across according to the pattern and when you come to the last 2sts, increase in one of them and purl the last st. I think that this will work out easier when you see it on the needles because you will be changing the sts to maintain the k2p1 pattern.
