Hand to machine, symbols 4: cables

The following begin to address cable translations. I posted some content on cables January 2012 , but this content follows the present vein. Blue dots continue to represent the hand knit symbol, below them the fabric as viewed on knit side. The pink dots and the images on either side of them the machine knit, or fabric as viewed from purl side. In the column on the far right the green dots and the images below them represent the opposing twist in HK or knit side.

To execute combinations in knit purl on the same side of the knit on the machine, a ribber is required (or a Brother G carriage). Purl stitches are on main bed, knit stitches are created by the opposing bed. To match the hand knit here, crossings are actually made in the same direction in both HK and MK
