Expert level pattern works

Could anyone explain me the meaning when the ATC gives you the instructions to “enter left downwind runaway 06 number 2” i kind of thought it meant enter the runway from the left hand side of the runway. Then as I didn’t make any turns the ATC started to give me warnings so because i didnt want to get reported i just left the flight. (Expert level) many thanks

ATC does not always need to ask you to turn base, you do so when you are ready preferably near the interception to the final cone… Because s/he said number 2 you needed to follow the traffic which was number 1 and because you did not turn base you did not follow the traffic and were unintentionally not listening to ATC. How far did you go without turning? And welcome to the community!
P.S Who was your controller?

You have entered a right pettern, not a left pattern.

A left pattern means all left turns. You will be to the right of the runway on the downwind.
