Help with pattern

can someone please explain the following for me?
Beg with a knit row
Work 2 rows in St st.
ROW 1 (RS) knit across

If I finish a knit row, then do the 2 rows in St st, which is Purl one row, Knit one row, how do I get to the the correct side of my work for ROW 1 to knit across?

You’re adding an extra row in your thinking - [I]beginning[/I] with a knit row do only 2 rows in st st, so that’s knit a row, purl a row, then the next row will be Row 1 with knit across. I’m presuming you’re doing something else for row 2 which will not be in stockinette.

thank you!!!
Very much appreciated

That was confusing to me, too. Now when I encouter it, I’ll know. Thanks for asking!
