The pattern is K3, P3 across until the last 4 or 7 which you knit. I'll have to keep looking for videos also, I couldn't figure out what I did, so I didn't know which video to watch and I couldn't find the fixing mistakes videos.
You may have inadvertantly added a stitch when you switched between knits and purls. It's easy to bring the yarn over the needle, making a yarn over, instead of between the needles.
This is a video for fixing ladders that may help.
Here's a link to the Tips section under Free Videos. Scroll down to the Fixing Mistakes videos.
