Sorry to not get back in touch, I've been on vacation.
I'm making the Susan Rainey block from "The Great American Aran Afghan" .
Instructions for chart in question are below
over 9 stitches
row 1 (RS) p1,k7,p1
row 2 and 4 k1,p7,k1
row 3 p1, 1/2 rc, k1, 1/2 lc, p1
rep rows 1-4 for chart b
So my question was for row 3. I've been teaching myself knitting and unless the instructions are pretty explicit I sometimes struggle for awhile. At first my confusion was with knowing what the 1/2 rc etc meant. But everyone here helped with that. :))). Then it was wondering if I should be purling or knitting. But I am going to work the cable on the assumption that I would have been told to purl it is that is what was required. LOL....if I'm wrong I can just rip it out again!
Thanks again for your help.
I don't know what I would do without all of you
