Quick question about cables

When the pattern says, “C4B”—does that mean you put 2 stitches on the cable needle, knit two stitches, then knit the 2 on the cable needle? I am trying this out for the first time----so any help will be great! Thanks!

Yes. But you missed where to put the cable needle.
C = cable or cross
4 = 4 total stitches, 2+2
B = Back, hold the cable needle to the back of the work.

C4F would hold the cable needle to the front of the work.

Hi! Thanks so much—I had tried cables one time before—but sort of forgot! It is going pretty good right now----slows me down, but it will look pretty when its finished. Thanks again!
