Pattern is confusing Review by Mary

I was not clear what is meant by knit 5 rounds even???? After 4 rounds of the pattern. When you are following a pattern with cables if you knit 5 rounds won't there be a rib if knit stitches that do not follow the pattern chart??? I don't see that in the picture. Then it jumps to what sounds like the increase row 10.
If there is a correction to this pattern i could not find it?
