    Hi , I thought that cable 2 meant that you put two stitches on the cable needle. Have I been doing this wrong?

      When you see a cable stitch written like cXf or tXb, X = the number of stitches the cable is worked across. So unless the abbreviation has a special explanation, you’ll slip half of X onto your cable needle and then work the cable pattern.

      Make sense?
