# Am I reading this Pattern Correctly

[b]Hi Okay got the cable down pat now on this pattern for Aron Fisherman Cardigan I presume that I would Purl all of my stiches except K1 at Beg. and end for all even rows, because even the [color=darkblue]T2 [/color]says[color=darkblue] purl on WS [/color]rows which would be even rows also. Here is the Pattern and Stitch Explanation.

[color=darkred]STITCH EXPLANATION:[/color]ssk = slip, slip, knit: Sl 2 sts, pick up the 2 sl sts with left-hand needle, insert needle through back loop of both sts and work them off tog (= 1 dec).
T-2 = Twist 2: RS: Skip first st, k second st through front loop without allowing the worked st to sl off needle, k skipped st, let both sts sl off needle at the same time. WS: P 2.

C-6 = Cable 6: Row 1 (RS): K 6. Row 2 & all even rows: P 6. Row 3: Sl first 3 sts onto cable needle, hold in front, k 3, k 3 from cable needle. Rows 5 & 7: K 6. Row 8: P 6. Rep Rows 1-8 for C-6.

C-12 = Cable 12: Row 1 (RS): K 12. Row 2 & all even rows: P 12. Rows 3 & 9: Sl 3 sts onto cable needle and hold in back, k 3, k 3 from cable needle; sl next 3 sts onto cable needle and hold in front, k 3, k 3 from cable needle. Rows 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19 & 23: K 12. Rows 15 & 21: Sl 3 sts onto cable needle and hold in front, k 3, k 3 from cable needle; sl 3 sts onto cable needle and hold in back, k 3, k 3 from cable needle. Row 24: P 12. Rep Rows 1-24 for C-12.

Row 2: K 1, *p 2, k 2; rep from * across, end k 1. Rep Rows 1 & 2, 4 more times. Rep Row 1 once more. Est Fisherman Pat: Row 1 (RS): K 1, (p 2, T-2) 1 (2, 3, 4) times, p 3, T-2, p 3, C-12, p 3, T-2, p 2, T-2, p 3, T-2, p 1, C-6, p 1, T-2, p 3, T-2, p 2, rep from * to * once more, T-2, p 3, C-12, p 3, T-2, p 3, (T-2, p 2) 1 (2, 3, 4) times, k 1. Cont in est pat until piece meas 6" from beg. Dec 1 st at each side inside first and last sts, then every 10 rows 3 (7, 9, 11) times more – 126 (126, 130, 134) sts.

I believe that the stitches that you purl on the right side between the pattern stitches should be purled on the right side and knit on the wrong side.

Basically, what you should do on the wrong side is knit the knits and purl the purls as they face you.
