I would work it exactly like the pattern says, or you face having to do the opposite for the rest of it. What you COULD do :idea: Is take a crochet hook and reverse those two stitches to be the correct way and then continue. Put the crochet hook in the front to make the purl into a knit, and put the hook in the back to make the knit into a purl.
