Hello, This is my first attempt to knit according to a chart rather than pattern. If anyone could write out in pattern form the Rows 2 through 5 of the attachment, I would be very grateful. I just don't understand the directions of doing the opposite stitch on the uneven row following an even row.
Thank you

Since you’ve never used a chart before and this one seems hard to you, I recommend that you start by learning some general information about charts. Best resource I know is “Charts Made Simple” by JC Briar - a small paperback chock full of info and a great reference for any chart you might come across in the future. Your library might have it, or available on Amazon, new or used

Starting at the bottom right, read the stitches across right to left on rows 1,3,5,7, etc.
On rows 2,4,6,8, etc. the stitches are read from left to right.
The 12 st. repeat is outlined and you should use stitch markers before and after the repeats to keep you on track.
If your key indicates that the blank squares are knit and the grey squares are purl, then
Row 1 is all knit stitches and the pattern has a garter stitch border of 3 stitches at the beginning and end of each row. [garter stitch is knit on both sides]
Row 2 WS K3, p3 *p2, k3, p3, k3, p1* repeat from * to *, p1, k3
Row 3 RS k4 *k2, p3, k3, p3, k1,* k6

Magna84 has the stitches correct, but you need to indicate the 12 st. repeat.
