Okay, this is what I would do. Start the pattern like they say...Cast on 73 sts, then work the *K1, YO, K2Tog row...
Knit 4 rows and then when they refer to the lace pattern, I think they are talking about Row 2 of the pattern they give you. I can try to explain my logic behind that...
When you are done knitting the piece, you are ending with a row 4 (same as row 2 and 6) so I think you would start the main body the same way. start the main body with row 2 (the repeat six times refers to the number of times the pattern repeats itself before the end of the row)
then work rows 1-8 of the pattern 32 times, until you reach the next part of your directions, which says to work rows 1-4 again.

Does that make a bit more sense? This is probably one of the worst written patterns I've seen in a while...
