Cable knitting


#1

My pattern says p1 c4b p2. Does that mean purl 1. Put 2 stitches behind on a cable hook. Purl 2. Then do I knit the cable hook stitches or purl them. Then purl 2. This sirdar pattern is not very easy to follow. I’m almost done with this bootie and can’t quit now. Thank you for the help

Welcome!

For this pattern you’ll purl 1, (slip 2 stitches to a cable needle and hold in back, knit 2, knit 2 from the cable needle), purl 2.

The part in () are the c4b instructions.
