I agree. And yes, 30 rows total: 10 rows in k1p1 followed by 20 rows in k2p1.

You mean the part in parentheses is what you don't understand? Work the 7 rounds as written, then do it again, and again, as many times as it takes to get the the specified approximate 4 in. (or 10 cm.). Depending on how close you are to the correct measurement you can end with either the 4th round or the 8th round. If you're a little short of the 4" on the 4th round, work another set of rounds 5-8; if you're a little short at the 8th round, work another set of rounds 1-4. HTH

Inc. 8 stitches evenly around means do your increases with, more or less, the same number of stitches between each increase. To work this out divide the number of stiches you have (64) by the number of stiches you are increasing by (8). So 64/8 = 8. This means you do an increase every 8 stitches. If you are doing the M1 increase you knit 8 sitches and do the M1 between the 8th and 9th stitch (1st stitch of the next set of 8). If you are doing the KFB increase you knit 7 stitches and do the KFB on the 8th stitch of each set of 8.

For future reference, sometimes you'll get a pattern where Stitch Number/Increase Number doesn't give a whole number. EG you may have an answer of 4 1/2. In that case you would work 4 stitches and increase, work 5 stitches and increase untill you had all your increases.

To divide your sitiches into 24 on each needle simply work some more stitches from the next needle along, as you come to it.

Question the part I am working on right now is Rep last 8 rnds for texture pat until work from beg measures approx 4 ins [10 cm], ending on a 4th or 8th rnd of pat. So where do I measure from the last rnd to the cast on or do I measure only the texture pattern really need help

I think you're on the foot part? I'd measure from the cast on for the foot where you left the heel opening.
