Pattern help

image

OK I’ve just re-introduced myself to knitting and can follow the instructions ok but need a little help with the instructions here.

Where it says “Work 23 rows on these stitches…” does it mean using the 2 rows of the pattern even though I have a different number of stitches on my needle?

Hope you can help people.

Welcome!
What is the name of your pattern?

Salmonmac it’s a wendy 5857

Just knit across these sts to add the pocket lining to the seam side on the left front. Later in the pattern, you’ll go back to the sts on the holder and work the outside of the pocket along with the ribbed border on the front.
You can read ahead and see if the directions for the outer part of the pocket include the ribbed border to be sure.

Right, thanks for your help.
