K the knit stitches; P the purl stitches
I am a relatively new knitter working on a stitch that reads
rows 1 and 5: Knit
rows 2, 4, 6 and 8 - K the knit stitches; P the purl stitches
row 3 - K1, P2, K6, etc
Are rows 2 and 6 just knit also, if they were knit in the row before? The swatch doesn't look like the picture I'm working from. What have i missed?
