The Cross Four Left is a traditional cable stitch. All cable stitches are rearranging the order of the stitches being worked, creating a twisted effect on the fabric. The Cross Four Right uses the abbreviation C4L, the 4 standing for the four stitches involved in the completed cable. The L is for Left, indicating the direction of the twist of the finished cable.
