Help starting a project

Hello! I recently came across this project but the instructions are so unclear to me and I just dont understand it at all… I’m gonna include it here. English is also not my main language so its hard to understand all the terms. I’m also adding the picture of how it is supposed to look. Where am I supposed to start?

KNEE HI'S
Using A and larger needles, CO 40 sts. Begin 2x3 Rib. Work even until piece measures 4" from the beginning, ending
with a Wis row.
SHAPE LEG
Note: Unravel all dropped sts down to CO row.
Dec Row 1 (RS): K2. p1, drop st, p1, k2, p3, k2 3 times, p1, drop st, p1, k2, p3, k2 twice, p3-38 sts remain.
Row 1: K3. p2. k3 twice, p2, k2, p2, k3 3 times, p2
k2. p2
Row 2: K2, p2, k2, p3 3 times, k2, p2, k2, p3 3 times.
Repeat Rows 1 and 2 until piece measures 5 1/2" from the beginning, ending with a WS row.
Dec Row 2 (RS): *K2, p2, k2, p1, drop st, p1, k2, p3, k2, p1. drop st, p1; repeat from * to end- 34 sts remain.
Row 1: K2, p2, K3, p2, [k2, p2) 3 times, k3, p2, k2. p2 twice.
Row 2: K2. p2, k2 twice, p3, k2, p2, k2 3 times, p3, k2, p2.
Repeat last two rows until piece measures 7" from the be ginning, ending with a WS row.
Dec Row 3 (RS): K2, p2. k2 twice, p1, drop st, p1, k2, p2, k2 3 times, p1, drop st, p1. k2, p2-32 sts remain.
Next row (WS): *K2, p2; repeat from * across. Work even until piece measures 24" or desired length from the begin-ning. Cuff should fall just above wearer's knee.
CUFF
Change to smaller needles and one strand each of A and B held together. Work even until piece measures 26* from the beginning, ending with a WS row. BO all sts loosely in pattern, leaving a 36" tail,
FINISHING
Using tail, sew side seam. Weave in all loose ends.
Make a second knee Hi to match the first.

Help starting a project (Knee Hi's)
by: Ratchadawan

Hi Jonna,

Start with a larger needle and A yarn. CO 40 sts.

Next row (right side):Begin K2, P3 rib ( work k2, p3, k2, p3, k2, p3...like this all the way to the end of the row.)
Next row(wrong side): knit the knit stitches and purl the purl stitches.

Repeat these 2 rows until it's 4" long ending with the wrong side row (get ready to work on the right side on the next row)

Then follow the rest of the Shape Leg instruction. To drop st off is just to let it fall of the needle. Then when you done with the project, you can go back and unravel all the drop sts.

Hope this helps. Good luck with the project!
