Reading Charts for Cable Stitches

I read the chart from the bottom up - correct?
Read the first line from right to left and the second line from left to right???
i.e. read in the same direction as I’m knitting or purling??
I am an “older” knitter, back when patterns spelled everything out.
Now that charts save words - I tend to get it wrong. Thanks for your help.

You’ve got it! Right side–right to left; wrong side, left to right.

Yup, you got it! :slight_smile:

To Ingrid & Abbily - I appreciate your response. Thank you again.
