Need help with hood instructions

The instructions for the hood of a sweater I’m knitting are the following. Step 8 has me confused.

  1. Cast on 96 sts and work 2 knit rows
  2. Now work as follows-
  3. Eyelet Row (RS) – k2, k2tog, yo, k to last 4 st, yo k2tog, k2
  4. WS - k2, p2 last 2 st, p2
  5. RW k to last
  6. WS - k2, p2 last 2 st, k2
  7. Rep these 2 rows until length measures 9.5" but
  8. Rep row at every 8th row (Total 10 eyelet in front)

Does this mean that for step 7, I repeat steps 5 and 6 until the piece measures 9.5", but at every 8th row I knit another Eyelet Row? I’m not sure what the “Rep row at every 8th row…” refers to… does this mean I should end up with 10 eyelet rows?


Yes, just keep working 5 and 6 until the total length is 9½" AND every 8th row do an eyelet row instead of a plain knit row. I think they left out a word or two on step 8.

Thank you!!
