I agree, do each 5 times. Wont the ssk and k2tog lean in opposite directions? the stitch counts works, assuming that k2end means to knit to the end - you've got k15 at the beginning, the 5 decreasing leaning one way, k1 is the center of it all, 5 decreasing leaning the other way, then k15 = the 51 stitches the row before had.

Thank you! I wasn't sure I'd hear from the designer so I posted here, but she did get back to me and you are both correct. I'd just never seen it written that way and being the perfectionist I am I wanted to make sure.
When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
Those booties are adorable, but the pattern writing in exusable. I have plenty of British and Australian patterns (the pattern writer is in London) and there's nothing like that, ever. I hope she fixes it! So many people are posting so many patterns these days, and the majority of them have glaring errors! I understand they're just mistakes, but it's very frustrating for the knitters who have to try to figure it out!
