After working 8 rows in stocking stitch (22 stitches), the next step is this:
Slip stitch knit-wise, inc, purl 1 stitch, knit stitch. Repeat section inside stars a further 4 times. Purl 0 (1), inc, purl 0 (1), knit 1, repeat section inside stars a further 4 times. Purl 1, inc, purl 1. - 25 (27) stitches.
With 22 stitches that I have on the needle now, when I follow the pattern, I only have enough stitches until the second repeat of the Star section. However it matches the pattern of having 25 stitches. Does that mean I ignore the last part “purl 1, inc, purl 1”?
