I am making this jacket - believe there may be an error - or i may be confused. In the pattern for a Large Cable, where 12 stitches are to be used, row 2 only uses 10 stitches. Can you please say where the other two stitches are to be used?

Dear Mrs Kanwar, you are correct, 2 sts were missing on row 2, correction has been made now. Thank you, Happy knitting!
