I am sure this is an easy question but I am still a little unsure of myself when it comes to cables.
So I have just started my second project with cables and my first project with charts and I am a little bit confused. I am working on this pattern. . . http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/elbow-patch-cardigan.
On the third row of the chart the instructions are to put 1 stitch on cable needle in the back; knit 2, purl 1. Then put 2sts on cable needle in front; purl 1, knit 2.
My question is when do I knit the stitches that I put on the cable needle?
I am thinking maybe I should  put one stitch on cable needle in the back; knit 2, purl 1 from cable needle. Then put 2 sts on cable needle in front; purl 1,knit 2 from cable needle.
Is this correct?
 
Thanks in advance

Yes, you've got it -
     "put 1 stitch on cable needle in the back; knit 2, purl 1."
Slip 1 st to cn, k2 from L needle, p1 from cable needle.

    "Then put 2sts on cable needle in front; purl 1, knit 2."
Slip 2 sts to cn, p1 from L needle, k2 from cable needle.
