Knitted tote bag...pattern error?
Has anyone knitted the free pattern from lionbrand.com called "Blended Tote"? I've attached the pattern in .pdf format.

I am running into trouble at Row 4. The pattern says to work in Seed Stitch (K1, P1) on every row until it measures 3 1/2 inches. It also says to kfb on the last stitch of every row, starting on Row 2; so, every row after Row 2, you are increasing by one stitch. Row 1, you have 17 stitches at the end (you don't increase here). Row 2, 18 stitches at the end, after the increase. Row 3, 19 stitches at the end, after the increase. Etc, etc, etc.

Rows 2 and 3 went fine. But when I came to Row 4, I ended the row with a purl stitch. Obviously, I can't kfb on a purl stitch! I had the correct number of stitches on the other rows, so it is not like my stitch numbering is off. My Seed Stitch pattern is consistent, so it's not like I did a knit stitch instead of a purl one somewhere. I am very confused! I'm beginning to wonder...is there a problem with the pattern? Even my dad (who doesn't know the first thing about knitting!) added up the stitches, and agrees that I end up with a purl at the end of Row 4.

If anyone has ever run into the same thing, I would love and really appreciate your help! Thank you!

My sister is working on this pattern, too, but is doing the whole thing in Garter Stitch. Maybe I should follow her example......
