I'm a new knitter, and I making my first blanket. It's my second cable project, so I don't have a lot of experience. The cable row says:
C8F: slip next 8 sts onto a cable needle and leave at front of work. K4, then K4 from cable needle.
So, what happens to the other 4 sts?
The instructions for the cable row are:
1st row: (RS) K4, *P2, C8F, P2, K8. Rep from * to last 6 sts. P2 K4
