From what you have written, it would mean to knit 2 rows.

Your pattern appears to be overall garter stitch (knit every row) with some decreases on every other row. Now you are to "work" 2 rows, rather than the previous 1 rows. In keeping with the garter st both rows should be knit.

oh thankyou for such quick response.
i wonder if you can help me again please.

1st row-right side knit
2nd row- increase in 1st st,k4,increase in next stitch,k1
increase 1 st as before at end of next 3 rows then at each end of 2 following alternate row
increase 1 st as before at each end of 4th row
....

I'm confused at the alternate part, do i knit a row then increase or increase then knit a row and increase.
also in confused to the 4th row it refers to.

*1st row (RS) - knit
*2nd row - increase in 1st st,k4,increase in next stitch,k1
*
*increase 1 st as before at end of next 3 rows then at each end of 2 *following alternate row

Based on this I would then...
3rd row - inc one st at end, k1
4th row - inc one st at end, k1
5th row - inc one st at end, k1
7th row - inc one st at beginning and end of row, k1
9th row - inc one st at beginning and end of row, k1


But this line...
*increase 1 st as before at each end of 4th row
...makes no sense ( at least to me). You've already been given instructions for the 4th row. Are you sure the directions don't say the "following" 4th row?

That would mean to inc the same manner you did for the 4th row - inc at each end and the last stitch would be k1.
