I read this post before and didn't get it either.
I think that you take stitches from the ones that are on the needle.
So you don't just work with those first 11 stitches. You incorporate the stitches that are on the other needle into them. When row 2 says knit to end, knit 12 stitches after the sl1.
Do you think that will work?
