Okay, the blank squares on row 2 are the WS and would be purled, the ones with the dots are knit, so purls appear on the RS. A chart is a diagram of your knitting as it looks on the RS. Here's how it breaks down
Row 1 - k2, p1, cB, cF, p1, k2
Row 2 - p2, k1, p8, k1, p2
Row 3 - k2, p1, k8, p1, k2
Row 4 - same as row 2
In a cable pattern like this, the WS rows would be - work the sts as they appear - which is knit what look like knit sts, and purl what look like purls.
