Ok, this is different:
K2, (K1 winding yarn round needle twice) 4 times, K2, P1; rep from to last 8 sts, K2, (K1 winding yarn round needle twice) 4 times, K2.
In this case the K2 is included in the repeat because of the asterisks. The repeat is underlined above. In each case, the stitches that were made by knitting front, back, front, and back on the previous row are the same 4 sts that you knit wrapping the yarn twice around the needle. As you do the second row, check that that is what's happening and it should work out to 8sts left for the end of the row.
OK, I think the problem may be with row 1. You begin row 1 with 47sts (that's 7 repeats plus) and end it with 71sts. That's because you increase 3 sts every time you do the knit front, back, front and back. There are 8 of those for an increase of 24sts (47+24=71sts). I'm guessing at the number of repeats here so please let me know how many sts you have when you begin row 1. We'll get there.
