What would be the reverse of this cable pattern?
I'm making a scarf based on the "horseshoe" cable pattern in the Bella mitts. Here's the pattern I'm using for the scarf:

Rows 1-6: K2, P2 rib across
Row 7: (K2, P2) x3,
slip 3 sts onto cable needle held in front, K next 3sts
slip 3 sts onto cable needle held in back, K next 3sts
(K2, P2) x3
Row 8: K2, P2 rib across

It results in a cable pattern that looks like this:
/\
/\
/\

up the middle of the scarf.

What I'd like to do, is once I reach half way, I'd like the cables to start going in the other direction, like this:

For the life of me, though, I can't figure out how to do the cable pattern to make it do what I want. Can anyone more well versed in cables help? thanks!

If I understand it, your row 7 reads:

Row 7: (K2, P2) x3,
slip 3 sts onto cable needle held in front, K next 3sts; knit stitches from cable needle
slip 3 sts onto cable needle held in back, K next 3sts; knit stitches from cable needle
(K2, P2) x3


To invert, you should work row seven as:

Row 7: (K2, P2) x3,
slip 3 sts onto cable needle held in BACK, K next 3sts; work stitches from cable needle
slip 3 sts onto cable needle held in FRONT, K next 3sts; work stitches from cable needle
(K2, P2) x3

Yeah, you would just swap the 'hold in back' instructions for the 'hold in front instructions.
