Please help with reading the cable portions on the chart. I did a test swatch my zizzag cable doesn't look right. On the front cable portion, when shoud i use the 2/1 RPC & LPC and when do I use the 2/1 RC & LC. What does the P stand for? Is the set-up row the wrong side and the 1 row the right side? So the cables are knit on the right side.

    Yes, the set up row is a wrong side row. The P in RPC and LPC stands for Purl. The 2/1 RPC & LPC are on rows 3, 7 and 9 of the Front Cable chart, and the 2/1 RC & LC are on row 5 only. The difference has to do with keeping the center of the cable in 1x1 ribbing.

    Both of these cables are worked using 2 sts:

    1/1 RPC = 1 st crossing over 1 st to the right, with the st underneath purled

    1/1 LPC = 1 st crossing over 1 st to the left, with the st underneath purled


    These cables are each worked using 3 sts:

    2/1 RPC = 2 sts crossing over 1 st to the right, with the st underneath purled

    2/1 LPC = 2 sts crossing over 1 st to the left, with the st underneath purled

    2/1 RC = 2 sts crossing over 1 st to the right, all sts knit

    2/1 LC = 2 sts crossing over 1 st to the left, all sts knit


    The zigzag cable sections at each end of the chart that mirror each other use only 1/1 cables.

    The center section of the chart that forms kind of a V motif uses only 2/1 cables.

    The cable symbols for maneuvers with purl sts in them are shaded. If you are working from a light photocopy you might not be able to see the shading any more. Refer back to the chart in the book, and color in the shaded symbols on your copy to darken them, if necessary.
