I must be pretty dumb because I still don't get it.    Roll Eyes
It says to work rope cable over next 10 sts.
But when you go to where it says Rope Cable,
Row 5: (not including the edges) slip 3 sts to cable needle (cn) and hold in front, k3, k3 from cn.
Isn't that only 6 sts that have been done as a cable?

Maybe I'll get it eventually. lol.

Where do you get the not including the edges part? They *should* be included.

You have sixteen stitches, right? There's K3 on both ends which is not included in the "ten stitches" so that you have a garter stitch border. And the P2 on either side of the cable for that row is important!

So for row five, you knit 3, purl 2, do the cabling on the next six stitches, purl 2, knit 3.

I hope that helps! Smiley

I'm sorry, but I'm real confused. I've only recently started to learn cabling.
What I don't understand is right below the Setup row (WS)
It says - Row 1: K3, (I understand) sm, (I understand) work rope cable over next 10 sts, (I don't understand) sm, (I understand) k3. (I understand)
It's only the "work rope cable over next 10 sts" that I don't understand.
fairysari, do you mean that with those 10 sts I do: P2, do the cables alternating front and back for each row, P2?
And I would of course have a K3 at either end of that row.

Please excuse all of the bold. I tried to turn it off but I couldn't.
And I'm sorry if I don't reply promptly. I can't get online much these days.

Um, maybe? it's basically like working ribbing, except on one out of the 10 (or whatever...) rows you do the cable thing.
