The next set of instructions I don't understand.

Using cable CO, CO 12 sts at beg of next 2 rows - 39 sts. (How do you get 39 stitches when you have 16 already and then add 12 and then 12 on the next 2 rows?

You don't. . They messed up.

Work 2 rows in St. st.

When you do the cable CO, do you CO 12 sts, turn and then CO 12 more? After that, do you turn and work the next 2 rows in the St st?
I am sure this is something I am making harder than it really is?
Row 1: Cast on 12, knit the original 16 sts.
Row 2: Cast on 12, and then knit the 28 sts from the previous row.
Rows 3 and 4: stockinette st.
