PLEASE HELP!!!
Can someone pls help me? I am new to the knitting world. I received Susan Bates Learn Knitting Book as a gift( I don't care for the instructions since they are not clear). Anyway, I am trying to do the so-called easy project that says as follow: Bias Strip (Make 6)

Cast on 2 sts.
Knit 1 row

Next Row: Inc, knit to end of row-3 sts. ?
Repeat last row 33 more times-36 sts. ?

Next Row: Inc, knit to last 2 sts, k2tog-36 sts.?
Knit 1 row even.

Repeat last 2 rows until piece measures 50" from beginning

Next Row: K2tog, knit to last 2 sts, k2tog-34 sts.?
Knit 1 row even
Repeat last 2 rows 16 more times-2 sts.

"Next Row: Inc, knit to end of row-3 sts. ?"

Increase in the first stitch, probably kfb, then knit the rest of the sts. You'll have 3 sts at the end of the row.

"Repeat last row 33 more times-36 sts. ?"
Do the same as above, inc in the first stitch and knit the rest on every row; do the same every row until there are 36 sts.

"Next Row: Inc, knit to last 2 sts, k2tog-36 sts.?"
Increase in the first stitch, knit across and k2 sts together and you still have 36 sts.
