Stuck on row 9-10

Hi! I found this pumpkin tea cozy pattern and started to make it, but I don’t understand what to do at row 9-10, it seems confusing. I’m not sure if I should turn my work because that seems to leave me with not enough stitches, but it doesn’t say to continue on row 9. Hoping someone can help me out. I’ve been knitting for over 20 years, but I can’t figure this out.

Here’s a link to the free pattern I’m using…

Welcome to KH!
Cast off the two sts and continue on row 9. At the end of the row turn and start to work row 10.
