Short Row question

My instructions for a button band say:
Work to last 9 sts, wrap next st, turn, work to end…etc etc.
I know how to all that, but I cant figure out if the last 9 sts include the 2 selvage sts, or just the sts in the pattern.

Do you have a link to the pattern?

It’s a bought pattern and i cant get a response from the author.

Even the pattern name and designer is a help. We can probably find a photo of the pattern.
