Have you seen the Errata
for the pattern and does it apply to what you're working on now? It looks like the pattern is done in stockinette so you'd continue in pattern and knit the knit side and purl the purl side. I may not be understanding what you want to know and if not, sorry for being unhelpful. You can post a few lines from the pattern, maybe the row before and this one that's confusing you anyhow.
