For the first row you work row one of the cable directions, for row 2 you work row 2 of the cable directions, then 3, etc. Once you have completed the 6 rows of the cable pattern, you go back to row one and keep repeating through 6

So when I get to the first time it says do 8 from cable pattern i do all 6 rows? Thats what confuses me. The instructions i put are for the set up row. Do i do row 1 of cable pattern for that row? The row after set up row is labeled row 1 so that what throwing me off i think.

Just do row 1 of the cable pattern on the setup row. On the next row, called row 1 in the pattern, do the next cable row, row 2 of cable pattern. It's not going to be as confusing as that sounds. The seed st is easy to follow because you just purl the sts that look like knits and knit the sts that look like purls. Keep track of the cable rows so that you'll know when you get to row 5, the cable cross row. That'll keep all your cables looking nice and even.
