Pattern help please!

I have this pattern that I’m trying to follow, but one of the instructions is a little confusing. I am a beginner, but I have a good grasp on the basics.

This is what I’ve done so far:
Cast on 9 stitches
Worked 16 rows of garter stitch

NOW, the instructions say this:
“Next row (increase): KFB, K to last st, KFB=11 sts”

I’m confused because if I KFB to the end I get 18 stitches, not 11. Then I tried knitting front to back, then continue knitting the rest, but I’d get 10 KFB stitches, not 11, still with too many stitches.

I’m hoping someone would be able to clarify these instructions please? Thank you!!

The phrase, “k to last stitch” means to knit normal up until the last stitch.
KFB the first stitch, k 7, KFB the last stitch. (11sts)
