I am knitting a sweater which requires a BC (back cross) and FC (front cross). The instructions call for me to slip 3 stitches onto cable needle and hold in back, K2, sl p st from cable needle onto left needle and purl and then k2 remaining stithces on cable needle. I am not sure if I am supposed to slip the first stitch on the cable needle ( the first stitch I slipped onto the cable needle) or the last stitch on the cable needle??? I think I should always use the first stitch but it is very awkward to get it onto the left needle. Any help will be appreciated!
