knitting one row on the wrong side
This is my issue at the very beg of pattern, I am not sure how to do this..

1. Beginning with cardigan right side first, cast on 33 stitches and work 4 rows in stocking stitch.
2. Work a breaking row by knitting one row on the wrong side.

I read work 4 rows in St st as knit row, purl row, knit row, purl row.....and then step 2 is knit row on wrong side? Can somebody please describe to me how I go about this?

Instead of knitting row 5, purl it. That will put a purl ridge on the knit side, which will probably be used for a turning ridge for a hem. So your rows will be k, p, k, p, p, p, k, p, etc.

Though they may be assuming that you start with a purl row for the stockinette, so you would then p, k, p, k, k, k, p.

It's not written well, the main thing is to get 4 rows of stockinette, then make sure a purl ridge shows up on the RS.
