Not sure what happened to the left side of this one. Anxious to start on scarf so I am going to come back to this one and try again.

Remember your cable will look exactly like your chart, so after you finish a cable row, just compare before moving one. The first repeat is perfect, but then when you started the repeat again you can see that the second cable goes off in row 4. You started the second pair of left crosses right after the two purl stitches (that crosses column 1 & 2 and 3 & 4) instead of working the p2, k2, p1 THEN working the left cross (that crosses column 2 & 3 and 4 & 5). Use this swatch as your learning tool. Compare it to the chart and follow each cable and see if you can tell where the "oh, shoot, I crossed in the wrong spot" moments are.
