I'm a bit stump doing a project from the Hansi Singh's book "Amigurumi Knits" In doing the head of the octopus, she instructed to cast on 4 stitches on 4 DPNs. Knit the first round. The second round, the instructions were to *KRL, K1, repeat from * to end of round - making 8 stitches. The problem I have is that KRL = 2 stitches from the first stitch from round 1, K1= second stitch from round 1, the second KRL = 2 stitches from the third stitch from round 1, K1 = fourth stitch from round 1. In total, there are 6 stitches, instead of 8... Is my math wrong?

I originally thought it might be cast on 4sts on each needle and increase every other stitch, but I think that'll make it too big for the size of the octopus.
