  1. It means;
    if you end up the first row by 2 knit stitches, you should start the 2nd row by 2 purl stitches, and continue with 2 knit, 2 purl and so on
    if you end up the first row by 2 purl stitches, you should start the 2nd row by 2 knit stitches, and continue with 2 purl, 2 knit and so on
    if you end up the first row by 1 knit stitches, you should start the 2nd row by 1 purl stitches, and continue with 2 knit, 2 purl and so on
    if you end up the first row by 1 purl stitches, you should start the 2nd row by 1 knit stitches, and continue with 2 purl, 2 knit and so on

  2. If you are just practicing the pattern, I suggest you to start, at least, with 28 stitches. Since the pattern is mainly formed in front side of the project, and all return rows are simply purled, there is not any obligation for number of stitches. However, having even number of stitches will help you in figuring out the pattern easily.
