Can someone explain this loop-stitch pattern to me?

I can’t post the pattern because it’s in a book - The Knitted Rug - but I know a few women have posted that they have it so I was wondering if someone could help me out.

It says to do the loop stitch on one row, then a row of knit which includes one increase. After it’s explained the pattern sequence, there’s a note that says to be sure to “offset the loops on every other row.” Does that mean that I should be k1, loop1 on every loop row? I’m confuzzled.


I’m at work so I can consult the book, but that sounds right. If you’re doing an increase on the knit row, that should automatically offset the loop stitches.
