I need help understanding the pattern instructions for a basket weave blanket done the afghan knitting loom. It says row 1 4 do four knits, four purls to the end of the loom. My question is when you get to the last peg what stitch do you do to get back to the first peg?

The first four rows will be identical. So, whatever stitch you end on, you'll do that stitch again going back in the opposite direction, still alternating your groups of knits and purls the exact same way you did in the previous row.
