Let's say you have a working copy foo and the repository URL is $REPO.

svn checkout $REPO/foo
cd foo

And you have a directory bar inside that. And you want to ignore the
files a and b inside that directory bar. Set the svn:ignore property
of bar to the list of files (or patterns, actually) that you want
ignored, separated by newlines.

echo a > /tmp/ignoreme
echo b >> /tmp/ignoreme
svn propset svn:ignore -F /tmp/ignoreme bar
rm -f /tmp/ignoreme

See this section in the book:
