Is there a pattern for the version that alternates ribs and cables?

it is so easy. just in every 4th row: (or you might want to pick some other row, if you  have section 20 rows long, you can make this in 2nd, 6th, 10th, 14th, 18th row, i would do that)
instead of:
p1, k2, pX, k2, pX, k2, pX, k2, pX, k2, p1

make:
p1, k2, pX, place 1st on cable needle, k1, k1 from cable needle, pX, k2, pX, place 1st on cable needle, k1, k1 from cable needle, pX, k2, p1

instead of placing 1st on cable needle you can simply first knit second st and then first st on left needle.

uh now it sounds complicated, but it is not, i promise:))

stoooopid question, what does pX mean? I'm about start this to get over my pattern anxiety so maybe I can make something pretty instead of just a plain ol' scarf.

thanks~

I'm assuming X is just there to represent whatever number of purl stitches you have at that time. Since they change every section.

The way that I did it I CO 20sts and worked the first section:
First row: K1, K2, P1, K4, P1, K2, P1, K4, P1, K2, K1
Next row:K1, P2, K1, P4, K1, P2, K1, P4, K1, P2, K1

Then did the cables ever 4 rows or so (like crnaofca). If you scroll back a few pages there's a pic of the progression of that panta. Page 65 it's a pink panta.

How big did you do your cables? Do you have a pattern on what you did?

haha You're fast! lol

My cables were only 4 sts wide. Kinda smallish. The part where I k4 is the cable. So it'd go something like:

First row: K1, K2, P1, K4, P1, K2, P1, K4, P1, K2, K1
Next row:K1, P2, K1, P4, K1, P2, K1, P4, K1, P2, K1
Next row:K1, K2, P1, K4, P1, K2, P1, K4, P1, K2, K1
Next row:K1, P2, K1, P4, K1, P2, K1, P4, K1, P2, K1
Next row:K1, K2, P1, C4F, K1, P2, K1, C4F, K1, P2, K1

etc. Actually, I'm not positive on the cabling abbreviations. lol But what I did was slip the first two stitches to a cable needle, knit the next two, then slip the stitches back on my needle (it helped me out) and knit them. If that confused you I'm super sorry and feel free to PM me.

ok, So I started the panta. I frogged it about 20 times before I stopped foretting where I was in the pattern or dropping stitches. I'm half way done with section 3 and noticed that my cables shifted over so there is a definite line where I went to the next part. Any ideas?

Thanks!
^_^

***Edit***

I think I may have figured out what I doing wrong, but it doesn't save me from the fact that I apparently have the attention span of a gnat (see the top of thepicture below where the pattern goes all wonky) I kept forgetting where I was and guessing/counting wrong

Here's what the wrong side of my pant looks like:



When the pattern says " ending with a RS row" does that mean the right side should be facing me or away from me?

I was so excited that I finally started this patten, now I'm kinda bummed out.

I'm pretty sure "end with RS" means RS facing you, since I've also seen patterns written "end with RS facing" but never "end with RS facing away from you". Just a guess.
I made a panta months ago but hated the way it looked on, and frogged it, but lately I've been looking through this thread again and think I may take another stab at it, and make it tighter this time. Having a different haircut now might help too. Wish me luck. I may be just deceiving myself in the rosy glow of all you guyseses lovely pantas...
