k5 dropping extra loops?? !@#$%^
Help!! I am so confused. Here is how the pattern reads:

Row 5: *k5w, k6 repeat to the end - This I understand, but
Row 6: *k5 dropping extra loops, p6 repeat to the end --- What do I do here? Does this mean I knit the first of the 2 loops I created by k5w and drop the next one?

You'll be going back the other way, so wouldn't you encounter the back of the p6 stitches before you get to the loops?

I think these are elongated stitches. Knit one stitch and drop the wrap (extra st). It'll make long, elegant stitches.
