Hi everyone I’m new here and new to knitting. I have fallen in love with fiber crafts and wanted to try knitting. I’ve knitted a little before but I don’t seem to remember much at all. So I am trying the Bernat Horseshoe Cable Blanket - kinda a big mistake but I thought using a big chunky yarn would work but I’ve ripped out and restarted 100s of times (I’m stubborn). Last night was my last straw and I need help. So I need to start with the basics: how can you tell RS from WS? I made it all the way to the cable panel in that pattern and my cables looked like they came out on opposite sides.
Also, this pattern has 12 rows for the cable panel. Around the cable panels is ribbing but it only gives the pattern for the ribbing for two rows. Do I just alternate the ribbing pattern until I am done with 12 cable panel rows? I.e. row1 ribbing, row1 cable; row2 ribbing, row2 cable; row1 ribbing, row3 cable; row2 ribbing, row4 cable; row1 ribbing, row5 cable… and so on.
Thank you all for your help!
