At first guess, not having seen it in context, I would say it means "continue in the pattern you have already started".

You have to look at your project and recognize what happened in the row below to create that stitch, i.e. knit, purl, yo, etc. Find that instruction in your pattern and do the next row to correspond to the previous stitch.

A simple example would be ribbing, where you knit the knits and purl the purls. A different example would be where you knit the yarnover, purl the purls, and cable the next four knits.

Look for the vertical pattern in your project.

Hope this helps,

Becky

Not necessarily just the row below, but over an entire pattern repeat. Most instructions will make it clear over how many sts and rows 1 complete pattern element is made (and then that is often repeated throughout the garment, unless it's a band or motif) - so you'll need to recognise the row sequence as well as the st sequence.

It's also possible that the placement of the pattern on different pieces of a garment may vary, to ensure that the pattern starts and finishes at appropriate points wrt seams etc, so you may have edge sts, or the pattern being 'set' at different start points for sleeves etc, in order for it to stack up correctly. Some people find it easier to see this relationship when working from charts or graphs, rather than written directions - and you could always write it up in a way that might suit you better.

I've probably made it sound more complicated than it really is ! Just check what your pattern repeat is, and you'll be fine :-)
