Knot stitch?

In a pattern I’m knitting, the instructions say:

Row 1: K1, [knot1] rep to last st, k1
Row2:kfb, k to last st, kfb (8 st)

The only place I found a “knot stitch”, it was described as k1,p1,k1 into one stitch…But if I did that, I would have way more than 8 stitches on the needle by the time I got to the 2nd row!

Does anybody know what this is talking about?

Thanks!!

How many sts do you start out with?

you start out with 6

Here’s another definition of knot stitch - http://www.knittingonthenet.com/patterns/swespring.htm

“(make knot) Insert right needle [B]under[/B] thread [B]between next 2 sts[/B] on left needle, wrap yarn and loosely draw up a loop and place on right needle. Insert right needle [B]above[/B] same thread and loosely draw up a second loop and place on right hand needle. With yarn in front, p first st from left needle. Pass first loop over second loop and p st, then pass second loop over p st-knot made”

Thanks! =]
