Decreasing
I have an instruction that calls for a decrease by holding two stitches on a cable needle to the back of the work and knitting the next stitch on the left needle together with the first stitch from the cable needle. Then knitting, again, the next stitch on the left needle together with the remaining stitch from the cable needle. When it calls for knitting together with the 'first' stitch on the cable needle I'm confused as to if they're talking about the first stitch that was placed on the cable needle or the first stitch nearest the knitting. Has anyone else run across instructions like this?

The first stitch would be the one on the right end of the cable needle. That would be the order they appear on it.
