Confused about This part of the Pattern

Alright another question about another part of this pattern

SHAPE INSTEP: Work 7 rows stocking st on these 12 (14) sts, beg and ending with a purl row.
Tie a marker at each end of last row for position of ears. Work a further 8 rows stocking st.

So it would look like this for the 7 rows. But do I go down 8 more rows after those 8 to make a total of 15 rows ending in purl?

Row 1 – Purl
Row 2 – Knit
Row 3 - Purl
Row 4 - Knit
Row 5 - Purl
Row 6 – Knit
Row 7 - Purl

Yes. Since you ended with a purl row on row 7, you would begin the next 8 rows of St st with a knit row and do rows 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, and 15. You will end with a purl row.

Thank you for your help.
