Mistake in Pattern?

I’m a fairly new knitter and I’m following a pattern that looks like it has a mistake or typo but I’m not positive.

In the pattern one row states:
K1. K2tog. *yo. K3.yo. Sl1. K2tog. psso. Rep from * to last 6 sts. yo. K3. yo. ssk. K1.

So it says to rep to the last 6 sts but if I’m doing the calculation correctly then yo. K3. yo. ssk. K1 is actually 8 sts.

Is this a typo or am I not understanding something. If it is a typo should a add the 2 sts at the end or will it ruin the pattern?

Thanks for any help!

Welcome to KH. The repeat uses 6 sts and the yo’s increase 2 sts, so you’ll end with 8 sts. A yo doesn’t use a stitch. Check the free videos tab for increases at the top of the page if you’re not clear on how to do a yo.
