Yep, you BO in k2, p2 ribbing, only after the first 2, it's one at a time - p1, pass over, p1, pass over, k1 pass over, etc.

What 3rd BO row? How many times do you BO 7 at the beg of the row? Do you have a link to the pattern? Or can you type the shaping instructions only....

Okay then, when you're at the 3rd row to BO, then you're really at the 15th st of the k2, p2 repeat, which still really works out to a p1. Don't forget though, that when you BO 7sts, you have to work the 8th st to get the 7 bound off. That's the p1 which will leave a loop on your needle. Then the st after that is the 9th and you start with k2. Maybe that's it, you're not accounting for the extra stitch you have to do to BO 7.

Ahhh, when you BO sts, you count the number of times you pass the 1st stitch over the next one, not the number of stitches you knit.
