Survivor dishcloth pattern question

Hello all-- I was hoping you could help me with this pattern
I am at Row 41 and it says to knit and purl a total of 28 stitches but if I do that it won’t add up to the 39 stitches I cast on-- Can anyone guide me?
Thanks so much for reading!

It should be purl [B]33[/B] stitches as in row 5.

thank yo thank you thank you-- I thought that might be answer but I just didn’t trust myself. Thanks so much!!!:cheering::cheering::cheering:
