How do I make this work?

I am making this top, and I have messaged the designer, and there was an error, but anyway, the following directions confuse me, because I was wondering how I make this work when I have an even amount of stitches?
Row 2: WS (P2, K2) repeat across ending with P1.
Row 3: RS P1, (K2, P2) repeat across ending with K2.
Work in pattern until back is 3”, 3”, (4”) from back marker. End on WS row.

I do not quite understand

I figured it out. I had to reread the communication with the designer, and I get it now :slight_smile:
