4 is the constant - probably 2 on each end of the row.
the multiple of 6 is what varies
Multiples of 6
6x1=6, 6x2=12, 6x3 =18, 24, 30, 36

After to figure out how many multiples of 6 you want, just add 4 more when you cast on.
So, if you decided to do 6x4 (4 multiples of 6) you would have 24. Then add 4 to that for 28 stitches

The pattern is trying to tell you how many stitches to cast on. So first you need to figure out how wide you want the item, then your gauge (stitches per inch) then you can figure out how many stitches to cast on.

Divide your width by your gauge. Make sure that number is evenly divisible by 6 and add 4 extra stitches
