Don't understand a cabled hat pattern

pattern says
"on 6th row of pattern, CB6 every section of six consecutive sts for one round. work pattern 8 more rounds."

What exactly does this mean…

No pattern link?

I’m thinking they mean to do your CB6 on those 6 knit st you have (from the [K2, P2, K6, P2] part).

Sounds to me like you have a 5 row border at the brim of the hat, then you have a bunch of vertical cables all in a row around the hat with no border stitches in between them, and it takes 8 rows to complete the cables from bottom to top.

Here’s what you do:

  • K2, P2 ribbing for 9 rows
  • [K2, P2, K6, P2] all the way around for 5 rounds
  • Then you do the CB6 round one time, which would be [K2, P2, CB6, P2], all the way around
  • [K2, P2, K6, P2] all the way around for 8 rounds
  • Then you do the CB6 round one time, which would be [K2, P2, CB6, P2], all the way around
  • [K2, P2, K6, P2] all the way around for 8 rounds
  • Then you do the CB6 round one time, which would be [K2, P2, CB6, P2], all the way around
  • [K2, P2, K6, P2] all the way around for 3 rounds

Then start the decrease part of the pattern.
