# Pattern seems wrong, how to proceed?

Hello All,

I’m relatively new to knitting, so I’m not likely to be judgmental of a pattern. However, a copy of a pattern I got from a yarn shop is really confusing me; it just doesn’t seem right.
Its supposed to be a cabled scarf, but the pattern only has me doing 1 row of cabling. I’m confused! Does anyone know this pattern (listed below)? Help! I don’t want to wait until Saturday to go back to the shop for answers, that would be 3 nights of not knitting my project!!!

So here is the pattern I was given:

[COLOR=“Blue”]

Row 1- K2 P2 (14sts), place marker, P3, K8, P3, place marker, K2 P2 (14sts)
Row 2- P2, K2 (14sts), K3, P8, K3, P2 K2(14sts)
Row 3- Cable Row: K2 P2 (14sts), P3, put 4sts on cable needle and hold in front, K4, K4 from cable, P3, K2 P2 (14sts).

Continue as follows:
Row 4: same as row2
Row 5: same as row1
repeat to 10…

Repeat rows 1-10 [/COLOR]

That’s all of the pattern. What happened to repeating row 3, the cable row? :pout: (And why do I need a place marker, is it just to help count out those 14sts?)
I’d appreciate some direction so that I can be doing more of this :knitting: and less of this :wall:

Thanks very much,

Cables can be done different ways depending on the yarn and the cable. In this case you will be repeating row 3 every 10 rows. See where it says “repeat rows 1-10…”? So when you get down with row 10 you start again with row 1 except you won’t need to add the markers because they’ll already be there. Make sense?

Oooohhh, I see where I got confused. I guess I got caught up in the repitition of rows 1 and 2 and forgot all about doing rows 1-3. I feel a bit silly. I just learned how to do cables using a ‘teach yourself to knit book’ and the lesson had the cabling about every 3rd or 4th row.
