You will be working in the round, either on a circular needle or on double pointed needles (dpns). A 'round' is comparable to a 'row' in flat knitting.

Round 1 you will repeat K1, P1, K1, P1, etc. for the entire round.
Round 2 you will repeat P1, K1, P1, K1, etc. for the entire round.
Round 3 will be identical to round 1.

Hope this helps.

You will keep repeat knit one, purl one until you reach the end of the row, i.e., K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1, etc.

Round 2 would be the same, except you would purl one, then knit one until you reach the end of the row.

You're ribbing.

It's actually seed stitch because you're doing it in the round and each round is different. Doing all rounds k1, p1 is ribbing.

Actually, since this is in the round with one round beginning with a knit and the next round beginning with a purl, etc., you will be producing seed stitch, not ribbing.

Oops! Glad you two are on the ball! It is indeed seed stitch. I'm sorry about that ~ for some reason it translated in my head as ribbing!

you are doing decreases and the part in the () they are telling you to repeat. So the first round is knit 8, knit 2 together, knit 8, knit 2 together, etc all the way around. second round is just knit. 3rd round is knit 7, knit 2 together, etc all the way around...etc etc.
