Help please with Berroco "Lorraine" pattern
Hello everyone! This is my very first post here, I just recently discovered this site and have to say that it is great and I have been sucked in reading all of the threads! :D

I was hoping someone could help me with this free Berroco purse pattern:

I can't even get past the first couple of lines! Here is the portion I'm having trouble with:

With larger needles, using Cotton Twist, cast on 59 sts.

Row 1 (WS): Purl.

Row 2: K1, k2tog, yo* p9, yo, sl 3 sts purlwise, k2 tog, psso, yo, rep from * twice more, end p9, yo, SSK twice, k1 51 sts.

I CANNOT, for the life of me, get those 51 stitches out of the 59 I start with. I worked this over and over, and it just isn't working. I've tried working it several different ways--one way, I run out of stitches before I finish the line, the other way, I don't have enough stitches. And if I work it backwards on paper or in my head, I just can't compute how those 59 stitches are turning into 51.

I'm sorry I'm not more clear, I'm just SO confused that I don't know how to explain it any better. I tried adding up the decreases and increases and it just doesn't work out, in my mind at least. I need to end up with 8 stitches less than I start with and the increase/decrease of Row 2 just doesn't add up for me.

Can anyone help? Thank you so much!!!
