What the instructions say is to knit
"Row 1 (WS) Sl 1, p21.
Row 2 Sl 1, k21."

Then to

"Rep [Repeat] last 2 [both] rows 6 times more."

Both rows will be knit 7 times.

This is a fairly common way to write instructions, however, it is not always clear the first couple of times around. To restate the instructions in long form:

Row 1 (WS) Sl 1, p21.
Row 2 Sl 1, k21
Row 3 (WS) Sl 1, p21.
Row 4 Sl 1, k21
Row 5 (WS) Sl 1, p21.
Row 6 Sl 1, k21
Row 7 (WS) Sl 1, p21.
Row 8 Sl 1, k21
Row 9 (WS) Sl 1, p21.
Row 10 Sl 1, k21
Row 11 (WS) Sl 1, p21.
Row 12 Sl 1, k21
Row 13 (WS) Sl 1, p21.
Row 14 Sl 1, k21


Knitting short hand takes a little to get used to, I can't say how much ripping out I did at the beginning and when I come across a new set of directions.
