Ok, so I tried making this before but... I didn't really follow the directions I think... Can someone maybe explain how I do the part in red? It confuses me a little (before, I just did a plain knit stitch for the whole thing...)
Cast on 47 sts.
**1st row: (WS). Knit.
2nd row: K1. *K1 in next stitch in row below
. K1. Rep from * to end of row.
