Welcome to KnittingHelp!
Thanks, GG. I moved this post to its own thread.
Cast on 13sts, knit across one row, turn and purl across the second row (that's stockinette stitch).
For the Increase row, increase in every stitch (you can use a knit front and back here), ending with 26sts total.
Now go back to stockinette stitch (knit a row, purl a row etc.). Cut the yarn leaving about a 6 inch tail and move the stitches to a stitch holder.
Can you give us a link to the pattern or a pattern name?
