How do I read this
by: Ratchadawan

I don't understand all of your question but it sounds like this is a simple twist cable that either go right or left.

I've never seen the abbreviation like this before but I found some discussion here that might help you; .

After reading the discussion above, I came up with this conclusion;

When you see (L) you place cable needle in the back, so that you'll get left leaning or crossing. When you see (Front), you place cable needle at the front of work to make a right leaning st.

I hope this makes sense.
Thank you for visiting and questioning.
