K5, pm, slip, K1, psso, *K15, inc2, K15, slip, K2tog, passo, repeat from * 6 more times, end last rep with slip, K1, pm K5.

First, are you sure it says repeat from * 6 more times??? The amount of stitches required to work what is inside the ** is 33 stitches, so if you were to have enough stitches to work the whole pattern as you have written it, you would have needed to cast on 245 sts.

Do you see what I mean? Lets break it down:
-K5, pm, slip, K1, psso = requires 7 sts to start
-K15, inc2, K15, slip, K2tog, psso = requires 33 sts to start
(^ this is pattern is done 7 times [1st time plus 6 additional times], which means 33 sts times 7, which equals 231 sts to start)
-slip, K1, pm, K5 = requires 7 sts to start

7+231+7 = 245 sts you would have to have cast on just do that row as written.

My guess is either the pattern's wrong or you may be misreading it.
"Knitting is magic. Knitting is an act of creation and a simple transformation each and every time. Each knitted gift holds hours of my life...It is all those hours when I chose to spend time warming another person. It's giving them my time - time that I could have spend on anything, or anyone, else. Knitting is love, looped and warm." -Stephanie Pearl-McPhee
