I am making a shawl. For row one, starting right after the cast on, it tells me to knit to last 2 stitches, increase 1 stitch, knit 1. Doesn't that leave one stitch left? So is it just assumed that I knit that last stitch? Am I misreading something? TIA!

Here is the pattern:

Cast on 18 sts.
Row 1 (right side) Slip 1 stitch, increase 1 stitch, knit to last 2 stitches, increase 1 stitch, knit 1.
Row 2 (wrong side) Slip 1 stitch, purl to end of row.
Repeat rows 1 and 2 until there are 100 stitches, ending with a row 2.
Front points
Next row (right side) Slip 1, knit 43 and place these 44 stitches onto holder; bind off 12 stitches, knit remaining 44 stitches. For left point work as follows:
Next row (wrong side) Slip 1 stitch, purl to end.
Next row (right side) Slip 1 stitch, knit to last 3 stitches, knit 2 together, k1.
Repeat last 2 rows until 3 stitches remain.
Next row Bind off all stitches.
Right point
Working with 44 stitches from holder, work as follows:
Next row (wrong side) Slip 1 stitch, purl to end.
Next row (right side) Slip 1 stitch, knit 2 together, knit to end.
Repeat last 2 rows until 3 stitches remain.
Next row Bind off all stitches.
Ruffle
With right side of shawl facing, pick up 1 stitch in every stitch around outside of shawl.
Row 1 Knit working 2 stitches in every stitch.
Row 2 Knit.
Row 3 *Knit 1, knit 2 stitches in 1 stitch; repeat from * to end.
Row 4 Knit.
Bind off all stitches loosely.

If you do a kfb increase (knit into front and back of same stitch) you will use the second to last stitch for the increase, and then will be left with one stitch which will be knitted.

For the ruffle, when it says:

Knit working 2 stitches in every stitch

is that also KFB?

Yep, you will kfb in every stitch, which will double your stitch count by the end of the row.
