I don't know why this is confusing me so much! If you're asked to end with the right side facing for the next row, I would have thought that meant you start the next row as a knit row. Isn't that the right side? My pattern says to end with RS facing for next row, but the first stitch is a purl stitch. Have I got this the wrong way round?!
Cheers Ingrid! It's definitely confusing! It says end with the RS facing for next row, and even has (RS) just before the pattern for that row...put the first stitch is purl! The row after that starts with a knit. So, I should definitely make sure I'm starting on a purl side shouldn't I? And that's WS isn't it?!!! My heads spinning!
It's in the latest Rowan Accessories book - the Solar scarf. I can't find the pattern online, but I've found a photo...not totally sure how to upload but here goes. I've done all the ribbing and am about to get into the cabling. The pattern says:
Now work in cable patt as folls:
Row 1 (RS): p2, (knit 6, p2) 4 times
Row 2 : k2, (p6, knit 2) 4 times
Row 2: p2, (c6b, p2) 4 times etc.
Trying to upload image....

Yep, from the pic and from what you've posted for the confusing part of the pattern, definitely there are two purl stitches between each cable so you do start with 2 p sts on the right side and the cables will be having k sts on the right side and p sts on the wrong side so yer fine hun. If you want, do the first 2 sts and the last 2 sts in garter sts (knit 1st and last 2 sts every row) and then follow the pattern for each row.
