Hopefully this will help.

I'll write it out "long hand" so to speak.  

K1, P2, K1, P2, K1, P2, K1, P3, K1, P2, K1, P2, K1, P2, K1, P3, K1, P2, K1, P2, K1, P2, K1, P3, K1, P3, K1, P2, K1, P2, K1, P2, K1, P3, K1, P2, K1, P2, K1, P2, K1, P3, K1, P2, K1, P2, K1, P2, K1, P3, K1, P3.  

You do the K1, P2 three times - so K1, P2, K1, P2, K1, P2

Then K1, P3.  You repeat this sequence three times. then another K1, P3. 

Then repeat that entire sequence another time.  You should work out to 86 stitches.  

Hope I don't confuse you more.  Sometimes for me it works to write it out in what I call "long hand".
