Heck, I am always getting mixed up. I am knitting a puppy and going through the rows getting to do row 6 and 7 there are 33 sts on the needle. Row 8 through row 24 tell me to rep rows 6 and 7 nine times still ending with those 33 sts. Row 6 is p and Row 7 is k.

To get to Row 25 don't I have to rep row 6 twice and the same for row 7 twice with counting the first row of 6 and 7 in the counting to get to row 25? Row 25 is also a k row. But...how can 2 rows of knitting as doing the 9 rows ending with row 7 being a knit row and start row 25 as a k row?

I should have done this first for you.

Cast on 9 sts
Row 1: k1, (kfb) x 8 (17 sts)
Row 2: p (17 sts) WS
Row 3: k1, (kfb, k1) x 8 (25sts)
Row 4: p (25 sts)
Row 5: k1, (kfb, k2) x 8 (33 sts)
Row 6: p (33 sts)
Row 7: k (33 sts)
Row 8 to 24: rep rows 6 and 7 nine x's (33 sts)
Row 25: k (33 sts)

What pattern are you using? A link or the exact name and the exact name of the designer please.

GrumpyGramma, It is a pd pattern and all I can come up with is the picture of him. Amanda Berry is the designer. She before did not define some instructions on a different pattern

You’re right - R6 & 7 takes you through row 25. Then stop.

Should be -
Row 8 to 25: rep rows 6 and 7 nine x's (33 sts)

I can’t quite figure why no one on Ravelry complained about it.

She has miscounted rows before and then another time not added in a row.

Ok, then I’ll quit doubting myself!

Thanks. I can't really look on Pinterest because I don't have (and don't want) and account. I think this is your pattern on Ravelry. https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/bernie-the-dog

That's a very oddly written pattern. The puppy will be so cute. Be sure to make notes to yourself for next time. I like to do things like that on a project page on Ravelry. I might actually find them when I want them.

Row 24 is a row 6. You work rows 6 and 7 and end the last repeat after row 6.

All you need to do is alternate rows of pearl and knit, rows 6 and 7 until you reach row row 25. All even rows will be pearl and all odd rows will be knit.

But..ending at row 25 which is row 7 both are knit rows. That cannot be.

Thinking.... have rows 6 and 7 done then I start to count all over to get to row 25 counting that into the 9 times?

I think you may be worrying about this too much. :-) You know that the next instruction is for a knit row, so just do one more purl row and off you go. Or you can skip the last knit row, which means you'll end the repeats with a purl so the next row will be a knit. One row either way is not going to make a difference. Just accept the fact that you are now a designer's assistant and you're "fixing" the pattern.
Don't fret - you know what to do - knit on!

I seem to always do that..think more than I should. Is it me or the designers? I am going to do as you suggest and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

HaHA!! That's my favorite thing to do — over think instructions. Sometimes I get so wrapped up in trying to solve a knitting dilemma that I even dream about it. My DH helped me the most….he watched me reknit the same row several times and asked what was going on. I told him I just couldn't figure out how this row will work out; it made no sense and he said - well, it's just one row; do you think that blanket will miss one row? Out of the mouths of babes. No, it won't make any difference unless you're working in lace or some other complicated pattern. So I just made a note on the pattern about what I did and carried on.
