If I remember this pattern right, you are working the 3 sections at one time (the 5 on each end and the center 36) with 3 separate balls of yarn. After you work that inch of stockinette, you knit across the whole thing with one ball and close your leg holes (so that line would be K5, CO 4, K36, CO 4, K5).
