Shawl question

I am knitting in the round for a shawl. The first directions say to knit 6. Does that mean I knit one, then purl the second since that is what is facing me? Or is it knit all no matter what is facing me.

Thank you.

If it says knit 6, then knit 6.

If you’re knitting in the round and you’re to knit 6, you would knit 6. What’s the name of the pattern?

Thanks! I figured. It’s called My Favorite Shawl. It’s by Wallis Knits.
