big block afghan pattern question
I just finished the first pattern row of the afghan shown here.

http://frugalknit12330.goeserv.com/h...e/bbafghan.htm

Here's the pattern:

Directions: Cast on 200 sts. K each row for 5 rows.
Start Pattern: Row 1: K 5, (border), *K 10, P 10*, repeating across row, ending K 10, K 5 (border)
Row 2: K 5, *P 10, K 10* repeating across row, ending P 10, K 5.
Repeat rows 1 and 2, 10 more times (a total of 12 rows).
Row 13: (Reverse Pattern) K 5, *P 10, K 10*, repeating across row, ending P 10, K 5.
Row 14: Repeat Row 1 as above.
Repeat rows 13 and 14 for a total of 12 rows.
Now repeat these 2 pattern sequences of 24 rows until afghan is about 54" from beginning, ending on any pattern row, as long as the 12 rows have been completed.
K across for 5 rows. Bind off in K st.



Now, Row 1 and 2 have confused me...but I think I'm thinking about it too hard, know what I mean?

Am I supposed to do row 1 12 times in a row, and then row 2 12 times in a row? Or should I do 1, then 2, then 1 and 2 again and again, etc.

Thanks in advance!!

Ack, one more thing (can you tell it's been a long time since I've followed a pattern?) LOL.

When it says for a total of 12 rows...that means each right? 12 rows of 1 and 12 of 2?

total of 12, means 12 all together. 6 of 1 and 6 of 2, alternating.

12 of each would be 24 and you'd get rectangles.
