LPC RPC RC LC?
Can someone point me to a correct definition of these stitches?
I'm looking at a pattern that in part reads:

Row 12: P2, k2, (p1, k1) five times, [2/2 LC, (p1, k1) five times] three times, k2, p2.
Row 14: P2, [2/1 LPC, (p1, k1) four times, 2/1 RPC] three times, 2/1 LPC, (p1, k1) four times, 2/1 RPC, p2.

Thanks!

It should tell you in the pattern at the top, between the yarn/needle info and the beginning of the pattern. LC/RC are left and right cross, LPC/RPC would be left and right cross with one or both sts being a purl.

I've looked for the stitch legend and it isn't there. I've got the basic concept of these, but I don't understand how you know which stitches are purled and which are knitted with that code. Unless this code always applies to a knitted cable with a purled background. Oiy. It's just a moss diamond cable pattern.
I'll keep looking.

Marni,
from what i can understand, you have a cabled pattern on a rib background.
2/2 LC= Left slanting Cable consisting of 4 knit sts. Slip 2 sts on cable needle, hold in front, knit 2 sts, knit 2 from cable needle.
2/2 RC= Right slanting Cable consisting of 4 knit sts. Slip 2 sts in cable needle, hold in back, knit 2, knit 2 from cable needle.
In these cases you cross the cables.
2/1 LPC= Slip 2 sts to cable needle,hold in front, Purl 1, knit 2 sts from cable needle. (you moved your cable to the Left)
2/1 RPC = Slip 1 st to cable needle, hold in back, knit 2 sts, Purl 1 from cable needle.(you moved your cable to the Right)
In these cases you're just moving the cable to the right or to the left, without two cables crossing each other.
