Rows 14, 16, 18, 20 and 22 K4, p4. 
Rep rows 1–24.

Note: this is a generic pattern for creating this cable. For a single cable it would be 8 stitches. In the example shown, there is one repeat of the stitch with 12 stitches are on either side, so you'd need to cast on 32 (12 + 8 + 12) stitches and knit 12 stitches before and after the pattern.
