help undertanding pattern
I just started knitting a baby blanket and need help understanding the 4th row of the pattern.

4th row: k1.p1.k2 (p2.k2)3 times.k2.*k3 (pass right hand needle under the crossed loops before next st. Draw loop through onto right hand needle to inc 1 st) for knit loop.k1 knit loop.

I don't understand how to knit the bold part. What exactly is the crossed loops?

Can you link to the pattern? It seems something is missing, to me at least. It might be perfectly clear to others.

Well...until someone who knows something checks in....
Maybe it's a knit right loop (KRL) increase?

The crossed loops before the next stitch are the result of the yarn fwd or yarn over which is worked into (either knit or purled) on the previous row. On row 4 you'll see crossed loops with the yarn over hole below them. I believe that's the crossed loops that you should put the right needle under and draw the working yarn through. It'll give you an increase.

The pattern could be clearer in writing this but "knit loop" means to pass right hand needle under the crossed loops before next st and draw loop through onto right hand needle to inc 1 st.
So when the pattern says to "knit loop" repeat the directions above. In row 4 you
K1. P1. K2 (P2.K2)3 times.*K3 knit loop. K1. Knit loop. K3. P1. P3tog. P1. Repeat from * to last 23 sts. K3. Knit loop. K1. Knit loop. K3. (P2. K2)4 times
