What does it mean row 5 has cable stitches - cable 2 says (cable 2 back) cable 4 also says (cable 2 back) Are there ever any cable front stitches?

What is an "edge" stitch? It states to cast on 34 sts. In the 5th row, the stitch count adds up to 36 sts? Plus the 2 "edge" stitches, whatever that means. Thanks for help.

The stitch count of the 5th row is 34.

Edge stitches
The 1st and last stitch of the row are the edge stitches. To make the edges of your work even and smooth 2 more stitches (edge stitches) are added. You should always slip the first stitch as if to knit and purl the last stitch. The edge stitches are not counted in the pattern unless otherwise specified.

I just wanted to thank you for sharing your lovely patterns. I am hoping to knit youir entire wardrobe for a doll who resides at an old people's home where my mother in law lives.Most of the residents have dementia, and some revert to playing, or "mothering" dolls and other toys, so your designs will be most appreciated.Thank you again :-)

What does it mean on row 35 front "cast off two stitches BOTH SIDES... ". Both sides of what?

I, too, am confused. when you say cast on 34 stitches, do you actually cast on 36 stitches? I am also confused by the cable - there is no cable front, how do you get the cable stitch that shows in the pattern?
