Cabling Question for Palindrome Scarf

Ok, this question is not because of any defect in the pattern instructions, but rather because I am new to cabling and therefore ignorant. =)

When it says “Slip 4 sts to a cable needle and hold to front,” does that mean hold them to the front of the work as in the side facing me, the side facing away from me, or the “right side” of the scarf? Thanks in advance for any help!

Side facing you

Thank you! =) That’s what I thought but I just wanted to be sure!

the side facing you is the side you need to let the cable needle hang down
:yay: good for you!
you actually thought to ask
(I didn’t :flirt: )
