Can anyone help me understand this?

I’m working on a great little shrug:
http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall05/PATTblackberry.html
but am having an issue with the sleeves. I completely understand the cable pattern and that it is 8 rows, but once I got to that section of the pattern, I got confused where it says
"work 3 rows in patt as set"
does that mean the next 3 rows of the cable pattern? I have a feeling it does, but just need another pair of eyes to confirm it! THANKS!:woot:

Yes. ‘work patt. as set’ or ‘continue as set’ means keep going in the stitch pattern.

thanks for the help Jints!! Sometimes the extra look by someone more experienced is so helpful!! THANKS AGAIN!
