Need help reading chart for Melissa Leapman reversible cable scarf
Hi All--

I've read charts before for knitting, and have not had problems. But this one is kicking my butt, and my brain.

here is how I read the chart:
pattern row 1: slip three to cable needle, hold in back, knit 3, knit three from cable needle, purl 6. repeat this 3 more times across.

row 2: purl 6, knit 6 across.

row 3, knit 6, purl 6 across.

row 4, purl 6, knit 6 across

row 5, knit 6, purl 6 across.

row 6: purl 6, slip 3 stitchs to the cable needle, hold in back, knit 3, knit 3 from cable needle. Repeat this 3 more times across.

But this seems really weird. I looked for pattern errata and didn't find any and I know Ingrid would tell me to trust the pattern, but it just seems WRONG!

please help me!

The cable in the left had column is made with the 'ws' facing. That row would read from left to right from the chart.

slip 3stitches onto cable needle and hold in back, k3, k3 from cable needle, purl 6
