I'm working a pattern that calls for a Cable Decrease (Beg of Row) and a Cable Decrease (End of Row).
The BOR (beg or row) - K3 TBL, do not take off ndl; K1 st on LH ndl, Remove both sts.
For this decrease, what I did and I'm not sure it's correct is K3 TBL and without taking anything off of any needle, I knitted the 1st stitch of the 3 then took the whole mess (which I guess is 2 sts) off the needle.
This seemed to work ok.
Then I get to EOR (end of row) - K until 4 sts remain. K in front of 3rd st on LH ndl; do not take off ndl; K 1st and 2nd st on LH ndl tog. Remove both sts then k1.
I tried to follow these instructions, but ended up with something that I know in my heart, was NOT correct.
Any little clues or hints that might help me to understand these, would be greatly appreciated. I couldn't find any reference to a cable increase or decrease and am not sure if this is terminology just for this pattern, or a standard decrease/increase.
