Not knowing the rest of the pattern, I'd assume that for the next 13 stitches, you'll knit on one row and when you get back to that group of 13 stitches on the next row, you'll purl them.

What are you making?

Hi There, Your pattern is telling you to work 13 stitches in st st. which is the basic knit 1 row and then purl the following. Because I do not know the rest of the pattern it is difficult to tell you exactly why the pattern is telling you to do this. I used to write knitting patterns and I will only say that it is not as easy as one thinks. I spent years criticizing knitting patterns and wondering often why the pattern writer s make it so difficult for people to understand. Never found an answer to this. I am fortunate to have some very antique knitting books left to me by my grandmother and mother. I'll tell you , some of the pattern instructions are written will entire information left out. They often just left it up to the knitter to have enough knowledge to be able to complete their projects. Sort of like winging it!When i was a pattern writer I would have my students and customers test each pattern before publishing it. It was my nightmare to have a misprint from the printers!
regards, Rena
