I don't have the book in front of me, so let me try to wing it: If the pattern calls for C4B, you slip 2 stitches knitwise to the cable neede and then let these stitches hang in the back of the work while you knit the next 2 stitches off of the regular knitting needle. THEN, you pick up the the cable needle knit the 2 stitches off of it. It's okay if it's tight to knit the stitches off of the cable needle, that's normal. Remember, you are reordering the stitches to create a twisting pattern (a cable.)
Does that help any?
Helped me tons. I just started the belt with your help
I'm making it with Sugar and Cream in Rosewood. Thankies! Your belt looks great
