Cast on a multiple of 8 stitches. Add 2 selvage stitches if you want to make a nice-looking edge.

Row 1 (right side): *SSK, yo, k2*, repeat from * to * to end.
Row 2 and every wrong side row: *p2tog, yo, p2*, repeat from * to * to end.
Row 3 (right side): *4 stitches right cable, SSK, yo, k2*, repeat from * to * to end.
Row 5 (right side): *SSK, yo, k2*, repeat from * to * to end.
Row 7 (right side): *SSK, yo, k2, 4 stitches right cable*, repeat from * to * to end.

Repeat rows 1-8 as necessary for completing your project.

All abbreviations are explained in the Key to Chart.

You can also work according to the chart below. Pattern repeat is marked by red frame.

Note: the chart depicts stitches in right side rows from right to left (that is, your first stitch in right side row will be the first stitch on the right of the chart) and stitches in wrong side row from left to right (that is, your first stitch in wrong side row will be the first stitch on the left of the chart). To make this concept easier the number of each row is shown at the beginning of row (number 1 is on the right side of the chart and number 2 is on the left side). Ignore this note if you knit in the round and start all your rows from the right of the chart.
