You're going to make 2 separate pieces up to where you join them where it says "Next row."
So make one and push it to the end of the needle and cut the yarn, leaving a tail to weave in later.
After the second piece is completed, increase one at the beginning of the row, work across the stitches of this second piece and then work across the stitches from the first piece and increase at the end.
Now both pieces will be joined and you go from there.
