Traveling woman shawl question

This is my first lace project. Pattern says:
row 1 (RS) k1, (yo,k5,slk2p,k5,yo,k1) to end
row 2 (WS) and all WS rows: work sts as established (k the ks, p the ps)

What does it mean " as established" is that just like repeating row 1? I don’t get it.


The back of a knit st is a purl, and the back of a purl is a knit. You ‘established’ the pattern in row 1 so when you get to the WS you will knit the sts that look like knits and purl the ones that look like purls [I]on row 2[/I]. Don’t worry about how you did the st on row 1, but knit them as they appear on the next row.
