The 'x's stand for your second colour. You start by reading the chart on the bottom right.
[which gets me every times since you read left to right in English, but if you imagine laying that chart over your knitting you will see that you start on a right side RS row and will be on the right hand side of the fabric you are knitting]
So... knit 3 of MC (main colour), k1 of CA (colour a), k 5 of MC, k1 of CA, etc.
Then the next row, work in purl as previous row matching colours...

Whew! Thanks Songbirdy - I think it was just very late and the instructions didn't say anything about joining the CC. I'm used to patterns that tell me exactly what to do and when to it! Silly pattern, expecting me to THINK and knit!
