Cable issue

What does C10Fp mean?!!
Thanks

I think the first part means cable 10 front, but I’m not sure about the p. Are there instructions for how to do this in the pattern? There usually are.

Can you please give us the pattern name and a link? There are just too many patterns to try and remember what they all are and what the designer means.

Hi thanks :slight_smile:
It’s cable cape in Knitting Gifts For Baby
by Mel Clark

The entire tow reads as follows

P10(11), [C10Fp, p15(15)]4 times, [C10Bp, p14(15)] 3 times, C10Bp, p10(11)

Throughout the rest of the pattern that odd p remains attached to the
cables??

That’s very cute! I don’t know the answer though. Maybe @salmonmac has an idea. You could also try messaging the designer on Ravelry or email if you have it.

I don’t know about the p in C10Fp or C10Bp either. Yes, it’s a cable and from the photo, they are all knit cables (no purl twist). In addition to emailing the designer you might try several of the recent knitters on the projects page.
I’d give another try to reading every word of the pattern from the very beginning, too. These abbreviations are usually at the beginning or end of the pattern.
It is darling cape.

I’ve been looking at tables of knitting abbreviations and it does seem that there is a purl stitch involved here. It may be that C10Bp is a slip 5 to a cable needle, knit the next 5, purl one from the cable needle, knit the next 4 from the cable needle or some variation on this.
Since no one seems to mention a problem with abbreviations in the Rav projects, my best bet is that it’s defined in the pattern.

I wish it were there. If it is i must be missing it…fully blind possibly.
There was another abbr that had no explanation and once I found anything
like it online it appeared to mean a single increase but the author wanted
that abbr to indicate symmetrical increases done on each side of the
cable. I only figured this out when stitch counts didn’t add up. I may just
not split the cable…I’m not too excited about that anyway

So this abbreviation shows up where the cable splits? It may be that the purl stitch ends up in the center of the split. I’ve seen that although the abbreviation was clearer and there were often charts.
So each time the succeeding cables move there are additional purls sts separating the daughter cables until there are enough purls for the pattern to continue straight.

That is what I was guessing…no note on how many to start with or in
following rows how many to purl either. I wish she had charted the cables.
You guys are great. I’m glad I asked :slight_smile:
