knitting a lacy edge border - pattern confusion!
Hi - I am finding it impossible to understand what this bit of my pattern is talking about! I am praying someone can explain it to me as it's driving me mad! It is to create a lacy edge border to be sewed along the edge of a lovely cardigan for my baby - the cardi is finished all but this bit!

Cast on 6 sts (note: sts should only be counted after the 4th row) does this mean knit 4 rows of garter stich first before beginning to follow the pattern??

Row 1: (rs) K1, K2tog, yf, K2, (yf) twice, K1
I don't get when I am supposed to do the yf twice - is if after each of the stiches in the K2?
Row 2: K2, K1 tbl, K2tog, yf, K3
I don't have the right amount of stiches to do this after I am done with Row 1!
Row 3: K1, K2tog, yf, K5
Row 4: Cast off 2 sts, K2 tog, yf, K3
These last 2 rows seem to make sense but again I have the wrong number to begin with!

I am sorry if this seems really obvious but it completely baffles me -and this is the first thing I have ever attempted to knit and refuse to let it beat me!

hope someone can help
thanks v much
