The stitch repeat is 8, but there's also a few sts before and after it, so you need a multiple of 8 plus 15. Subtract 15 from 71 and you have 56 which is a multiple. Sometimes it's easier without doing the extra math if you just take the original CO stitches and add the increments of the multiple. So take the 175 and add another 56, 64, 72 or 80 and there you go.
