That could mean when the next stitch on your needle is a knit, purl it, if it looks like a purl, knit it. That will make seed stitch, but that may not be what it means - it may mean "if you knit it on the other side, purl it on this side" which makes ribbing, common in cable patterns. If you can link the pattern or a picture or give us its name we can be a little more specific in helping you.

The sweater is a pretty combination of reverse stockinette and stockinette stitch patterns. So, looking at the stitches you're about to work, if you see a V on the needle knit it and if you see a bump or loop, purl it.

Yes I agree, there's no seed stitch, so just work the stitches however they look - knit the knit sts, purl the purls.
