More pattern problems...

Thanks for all the advice so far it's really helped!!

Two new questions though.....this is what the pattern says..

"working in st-st throughout, and beg with a k row, work 2 rows
next row: inc one st into first 2 sts, k (3), inc one st into next 4 sts, k to last 2 sts, inc one st into last 2 sts.
next row: p. rep last 2 rows, with number of sts in brackets 4 more each time, until you have 46 sts total. Work 39 rows; (48 rows total)"

I understand I have to knit until I have 46 stitches on my needle but then what does work 39 rows mean? Do I have to work another 39 rows? And if so are they knit or purl???

And secondly what does...
k2 tog, k4 mean?

Yes, you have to work another 39 rows in stockinette stitch--knit one row, purl one row.

K2tog, k4 means you knit two stitches together--insert your needle into two stitches and knit them as one, then knit for stitches the regular way.
