:knitting: I'm new to knitting and need help in reading a pattern. Row 1 states (P2, K2) 5 Times and so on. I get this. Row 2 is where I'm stuck. It states K4. Knit all knit sts and purl all purl sts as they appear to last 4 st. Do I reverse the pattern and (K2, P2) 5 times to the end. Thank you in advance for any help.

Pretty much, yes. This is a good example of why it's so helpful to 'read' your knitting. When a pattern says to knit the knits and purl the purls as they face you, you just knit into the V's and purl into the bumps.
