Pattern writing question

I am writing pattern for stretchy tank top. The stitch pattern is four rows: one is all yo, k, the even rows are all purl back, third row is all skp.

Feeling dumb

Trying to work out simple lace pattern. It's k1yo first row. Coming back you skp slipping the knit stitch and knitting the yo so I get that it alternates. What I don't get is the beginning or rows so it doesn't create diagonal edge. Every row can't start with k1 yo, right? Then what does that mean about last stitches. I am sure this is. Simple solution.
