Pattern Notes

When working the Cable Panel, the FPdc and FPtr sts are worked around the sts from the previous RS row (2 rows below). All sc sts are worked into the sc from the previous WS row. So, when working the sc that is between the 2 sets of FPdc or FPtr sts, look at the back of the work, sk 2 of the sc from the previous WS row, then work the center sc into the next sc. The final 2 sc sts of each RS row may be located using the same method.
