Knitting Abbreviations
I have knitted for about 40 years and came across a pattern with some different abbreviations. I'm looking for help to finish this project. CB, CF PCB and PCF are baffling me. I'm sure B and F are back & front but not sure about the rest. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

My guess is...

Cable Back
Cable Front
Purl Cable Back
Purl Cable Front

No abbreviations list provided on the pattern?

Thank you so much! There are no abbreviations and not even a picture! I picked this pattern up at a knitting shop in Boise, Idaho. It's a cute little girls dress I'm wanting to make for my granddaughter. I've been very frustrated with it for about 6 months and almost gave up.
Thanks for the quick response!

Following on, CB4 = put the first 2 sts on a cable needle (cn) and hold to the back, then knit the second 2. Then knit the 2 from the cable needle.

What company produced the pattern? Is it possible that the company's website has a list of abbreviations?

The pattern has been reproduced on a computer. Never thought about reviewing it when I purchased it last summer.
I appreciate the help! :-)
