I am in the middle of doing this project, but I'm confused about the instructions. I have knitted the 8" of edging and completed the first three rows of the pattern. It says cable panels A, B and C have now in position, but I am confused for the panel sequence for the rest of the rows. So, for row 4, what is the panel sequence?

useless without a photo!
