Need help reading a pattern

Establish pats:
Row 1 (WS): Work 25(28-30-33-35) sts in moss st, p1, k1 (mark this st on RS for embroidery), p1, 10 sts spiral pat, p1 (mark this st on RS for embroidery), 14 sts diamond pat, p1 (mark this st on RS for embroidery), 10 sts spiral pat, p1, k1 (mark this st on RS for embroidery), p1, 25(28-30-33-35) sts in moss st. Continue in pats as established until piece measures 131/2(13-13-131/2-131/2) from beg.
It says "Row 1", then says continue in pats...13 1/2". How do I do from Row 2 onward ? espcecially the p1, k1, in between different type of sts, do I p the p, k the k?

Please help.

Thanks in advance!

Happy holidays![/quote]

What you're going to do is work Row 1 from each of the patterns--they get that established for you in the directions. Then you'll work row 2 from each of the patterns, etc.

Since all the patterns don't have the same number of rows, you might do yourself a favor and write out a list with the heading of each pattern and the row numbers below it, so the 4 row stitch patterns will have a 1234, 1234 and the 24 row pattern will have 1 through 24. You can cross off each row for each chart so you'll know where you are.

That's exactly what I was going to do. I am glad you mentioned. But still, for the sts in between the patterns (p1,k1,p1 in between moss sts and spiral), do I k1,p1,k1 for the even number rows?

MOSS ST
Row 1 (WS): *K1, p1; rep from * to end.
Rows 2 and 4: K the knit sts and p the purl sts.
Row 3: *P1, k1; rep from * to end.
Rep rows 1-4 for moss st.

It looks like your moss stitch has two rows that are the same, and then two that are opposite.

Row 1 would be k1p1 to the end
Row 2 says to knit the knits and purl the purls, so you'd do k1p1 again in this case.

What about the p1 between the DIAMOND pat and the 2 SPIRAL pats? should I p for all rows?

From the picture, it looks like they're all purled from the front, so you'd purl on the front and knit on the back.
