front & back cross cable stitch HELP, please!

my daughter found a pattern for a scarf she likes. there is a lot of cabling in the scarf & i've never done cabling before. i am so lost in this pattern. i'm fine w/the FPdc, but it all falls apart for me at row 25. i thought i was ok, but my project looks nothing like the pattern's picture. row 27 was even worse! can anyone PLEASE help me figure out how to work these rows/stitches? the pattern (& original link) follow:

SPECIAL TERMS

FPdc: Front-post double crochet—Yarn over, insert hook from front to back and then to front again around post of stitch, yarn over and draw up loop, [yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook] twice.

Front Cross: Skip next 2 FPdc 2 rows below, FPdc around next 2 FPdc 2 rows below; working in front of the 2 FPdc just made, FPdc around first skipped FPdc, FPdc around 2nd skipped FPdc.

Back Cross: Skip next 2 FPdc 2 rows below, FPdc around next 2 FPdc 2 rows below; working behind the 2 FPdc just made, FPdc around first skipped FPdc, FPdc around 2nd skipped FPdc.

NOTES

1. When working FPdc, be sure to draw first loop up to height of working row, to avoid puckering the fabric.

2. The FPdc are worked around the post of FPdc 2 rows below the current row, except in Row 3 (where FPdc are worked around the post of sc 2 rows below). Do not work into the stitch of behind an FPdc.

fpdc - Cross Cable Stitch

The pictures are and should be a big help >
Since you already know how to do the post stitches >
making them go side ways and down 2 rows with these pictures for guides >
I think you can Slowly figure this awesome Crochet Cable pattern.
I don't think I could talk you through any better than the pictures themselves.
I know I would have to use the picture to work what the designer hopes that you to create .

Best to you as you CAN work this through !
