I’m trying my first cable pattern

Any idea what “k1, k3 from CN, p2” might mean? I have 3 stitches on the cable needle.


Welcome to KnittingHelp!
Knit the next stitch on the left needle, then knit the 3sts from the cable needle. Finally, purl the next 2sts from the left needle.
What pattern are you following?

Ah. Thank you! I thought it was instructions on how to knit the stitches on the cable needle, but there were only 3 stitches.

Here’s a link to what I’m attempting. I was trying to do it on round needles, but I only have 16" ones, so it’s not working. So just knitting it straight back and forth.
