I'm a bit confused...

> Cast on 5 stitches, knit around. Place a marker to mark the beginning of the round.

Next round, make 1 stitch in each stitch (10 stitches).

Round 5: *k1, yo* around to marker. (20 stitches).


...So what is done with the 2, 3, and 4th rounds?

Continue increasing or just knit the rounds.

I feel so lame for not getting the pattern.

Technically, your first round is the 5 stitches, your second round is the 10 stitches, and so that one that says "round 5" should be round 3.  There are a couple of possibilities here.  One is that you have missed something in the pattern somewhere that tells you to just knit even rounds, which is common with lace patterns.  (Only with flat knit patterns, it will tell you to purl all even rows or what have you, and so it will only actually list out the odd rows, etc.)  Another possibility is that the 5 is a typo.  I would read the pattern through again from the beginning to make sure you haven't missed something, and then if no light is shed, and you can, try contacting the pattern publisher or designer.  Do you have a link to the pattern, or a source for it too which you could point us?  If the pattern is online, or if it is in a magazine which someone else has, it might be easier to help.

It's the pinwheel baby blanket by Bonnie Evans.

It definitely looks like a typo to me.  Either in that the 5 itself is a typo, or that she has neglected to list some pertinent information.  You have two choices.  assume that the actual row numbers mean nothing and just work the pattern as written, not taking any mind of the phantom rows, or try contacting the designer via the email address at the bottom of the page.  (It appears that the pictures are courtesy of Bonnie Evans, but the pattern is by Genia Planck, and after searching for her name on Google, I've determined that the email address listed on Knitlist is indeed hers, however the web page that was listed as hers on another site is now defunct, so I don't know how easy it will be to contact her.)  You might also try searching on Google to see if you can find someone else who has knitted the blanket and contact them directly.

I'm going with the first option....looking at all the photos on ravelry, it looks fairly open instead of solid.

I like the change of your avatar...wasn't it a Southpark kid that you had previously?

Yep, I had a SouthPark Crafty Trinity for a while. Cheesy

This website might help too, as I hear those first few rows are pretty difficult without all the pattern problems.  It looks like it is generally assumed that the first option is the right one.  I don't see anyone else really commenting on the rows being misnumbered, so I think it is probably just assumed that they should be worked as written, not paying attention to the numbering.

It is a typo. Just ignore the round numbers and follow the st instructions and numbers.
