If the instructions say c6f that means I would slip 3 stitches onto my cable needle (does it matter how I insert the needle into those 3 stitches?) and let them fall forward in front of my work and then knit the next three stitches? Then knit those three stitches on the cable needle?
Is it normal that when knitting those 3 stitches off the cable needle the yarn is very tight and it’s pretty hard to knit? Is there a trick to avoiding this or is that just the way cabling is?
