Pattern help please
Hi there,

So here goes my first post :-) I am currently knitting Sydney the Owl (free gift from the "Let's Knit" magazine) and I am currently stuck with the wings because I don't know how to read this next bit.

I had to cast on 9 sts, done first and 2nd row but now it says this:

Row3: Sl 1, k2, kfb, k1, kfb, k3. 11sts
Row 4 and 6: sl 1, k1, p to last 2sts, k2
Row5: sl 1, k3, kfb, k1, kfb, k4. 13sts
Row7: sl1, k4, kfb, k1, kfb, k5. 15 sts

What does the number of stitches at the end of row 3, 5 and 7 mean? It's always 2 more but I have no idea where they come from. If I count the stitches I'm supposed to do for row 5 it makes 11. So why does it say 13sts? I am really confused.

Thank you for your help
