I'm new here and I desperately need help!
This is probably really stupid, and I get the feeling that it's a result of some part of my brain missing.

I'm making the Twinkle Best Friend cardigan and don't understand something- the part of the pattern in question is below- after I cast on and knit those first 5 rows, what do I do next? It says cont in established pattern, but I'm confused about what that is. I obviously don't go back to Row 1 under the body headline, because that would be doing rib again, which I should be done with...

Right cable
Rows 1 and 3 (RS): P1, k6, p2.
Row 2 and all WS rows: K2, p6, k1.
Row 5: P1, C6R, p2.
Row 7: P1, k4, MB, k1, p2.
Row 8: K2, p6, k1.
Rep Rows 1-8.

Left cable
Rows 1 and 3 (RS): P2, k6, p1.
Row 2 and all WS rows: K1, p6, k2.
Row 5: P2, C6L, p1.
Row 7: P2, k1, MB, k4, p1.
Row 8: K1, p6, k2.
Rep Rows 1-8.

Cast on 48 (52, 56) sts.
Row 1 (RS): K4, *k2, p2; rep from * to last 4 sts, k4.
Row 2: K4, work established k2, p2 rib across next 40 (44, 48) sts, k4.
Row 3 (buttonhole row): K2, yo, k2tog, rib to last 4 sts, k4.
Row 4: K4, work established rib over next 9 (10, 11) sts, pm, cont in rib across 22 (24, 26) sts, pm, cont in rib across next 9 (10, 11) sts, k4.
Row 5 (establish pattern and inc row): K4, work Right Cable across next 9 sts, p0 (1, 2), m1, p1, m1, purl to 1 st before marker, m1, p1, m1, p0 (1, 2), work Left Cable across next 9 sts, k4 -- 52 (56, 60) sts.

Cont in established patterns, making buttonholes every 8 rows.

AT THE SAME TIME shape body as follows: Work even 6 rows. Next row (Dec Row): *Work to 2 sts before marker, p2tog, ssp; rep from * once, work to end.

Work even 9 rows, then repeat Inc Row -- 52 (56, 60) sts. Work even until 3 full repeats of cable pattern are complete. Sweater measures approx 11-1/2" (29 cm) from beginning.

Can anyone help please? I don't know a single other soul in real life that knits other than the yarn store, and they are closed!
